Oxford University offers Reach Oxford Scholarship for Developing Country Students to study any of the courses (except medicine) in the UK. A number of Reach Oxford scholarships (formerly Oxford Student Scholarships) are offered to students from low-income countries, for political or financial reasons.
Another major reason why Reach Oxford Scholarships for Undergraduates at Oxford University in the UK could be offered to students may be because suitable educational facilities do not exist, cannot study for a degree in their own countries.
The University is unable to consider any scholarship applications from students who have not been offered a place at Oxford. The University is not responsible for the content of external sites advertising the scheme and would encourage applicants to read the following details to check their eligibility
