All Souls Fellowship Exam in Politics - Information Session

This event is open only to 1st and 2nd year students who are currently studying for the M.Phil or MSc in DPIR.

Every year, All Souls College seeks to elect 2, occasionally 3, by examination in a range of subjects, including Politics (which includes International Relations and Political Theory.) Examination Fellows are full members of the College’s governing body; they receive a stipend or scholarship allowance if eligible for scholarship status, free board and single accommodation in College, and various other benefits. The College normally pays the University fees of Examination Fellows who are studying for degrees at Oxford. Examinations Fellows typically do a doctorate; while most follow an academic career, some pursue careers outside academia in law, finance, journalism and the Civil Service. See for more information, including about past Examinations papers.

We will be holding an information session about the Fellowship and the Examination itself for 1st and 2nd students who are currently studying for M.Phil or MSc by Research in DPIR, on Wednesday May 29th, 1-2pm, Seminar Room C, Manor Road. The College is committed to attracting candidates from all backgrounds.

The written examinations take place in late September; a small number of candidates (typically 5 or 6) are invited to a viva on the last Saturday of October. The examination is open to those who have recently completed a first degree and, in addition, either did that degree at Oxford or have enrolled as a graduate student at Oxford.
