can anyone tell me, what are the minimum requirements to get this 'reach oxford scholarship'.?????
thanks for the reply. what does it mean by 'social commitment'.?? commitment to my own community, as in the guarantee that i will come back to my country after graduating or commitment to the oxford community....???
Just to add some more information to Omio's excellent answer, the scholarship requires 2 teacher's recommendations. It would be best that those teachers also understand your financial status, your academic capabilities, as well as your community spirit(like giving back to the society kind of thing) so that they will be able to write more about your condition and make it more favourable for you to get accepted.
I applied for the scholarship as well and got rejected :'(
Haha no problem, since I am still going there. I applied for the 2011 entry, in February I think. I got a place for Physics at Hertford. Are you currently an Oxford student, if I may know?
Yeah, right. You're going to Oxford anyway.
No, I'm not at Oxford yet. Just have an offer.
Here's a Reach Oxford Information pack for 2009 entry. The recent information pack doesn't contain as much detail about the procedure and selection of the scholarship, and this document may be more useful to those interested.
hey omio, so did u get the scholarship?
Hi everyone, I'm new here. I think it's still early to consider applying for 2012 Oxford Reach Scholarship but I really want to be prepared and ready for this.
I am from a developing country and could not possibly afford an education at Oxford. After learning about Oxford Reach Scholarship, I was very excited. However, the problem is I have to apply through UCAS and get accepted first. All of this is so new to me, I don't even know where to begin!
I've also checked the requirements for the course I want to study (International Relations) and found that I need to do this Thinking Skills Assessment. Now I don't have any test centre in my home country(Cambodia) and my country is not even in the search list on their website.
Please help. What can i do? I really want this. My country is in the eligible list to apply for Oxford Reach Scholarship.
There's a TSA centre in Thailand and in Vietnam, so you would probably have to travel to sit the exam.
Also, International Relations is not available as a single degree subject at Oxford - it comes under the PPE degree course.
Thank you all very much for answering to my post.
Omio, I'm glad i found you. And Congratulations on getting the Oxford Reach Scholarship! You must have done exceptionally well..
Another question though, how do i know which specific college offer this scholarship?
I checked on the website and it just said that the list wasn't available yet. They'll probably put it up sometime after October 15th.
