How to Apply

Owing to the volume of applications we have received we are putting a pause on any new candidates from being considered as of 12 March 2019. We may reopen the application window at a later date. If you would like to be informed of this, and placed on the waiting list then please contact us at: .


A discounted early bird price of £2850 is available to all students who pay for the Summer School before 12 April 2019. After this date the standard fee of £3100 will be applied to students when securing their place.

In either instance these fees include all teaching, social activities during the week, accommodation and several meals. The fees do not include the cost of travel to and from Oxford, visas, insurance or personal expenses. Social activities on weekends are optional but recommended.


The Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment is providing 3 scholarships for the Summer School that cover the standard course fee (£3100) in full. Scholarship applicants must be on track to achieve (or have already achieved) a 1st class undergraduate degree (or equivalent.) Scholarship applicants must currently be in full time education and we particularly encourage applications from students at Universities in Africa, South and Central America, and South East Asia.

Please note that the deadline to apply for scholarships was 11 March 2019, and we are no longer considering any requests for funding.
