In 2015, to celebrate Lord Weidenfeld’s 95th birthday, the Oxford-Weidenfeld and Hoffmann Scholarships and Leadership Programme was founded with funding from a number of outstanding contributors. The Trust’s Oxford-Weidenfeld and Hoffmann Scholarships and Leadership Programme will double in size thanks to an additional donation of £9 million from Chairman André Hoffmann in June 2017, which will be matched by £6 million from Oxford University.

This award is part of the Oxford Graduate Scholarships program, which was made possible by a novel matched financing initiative and is given to the world’s most promising graduate students. These scholarships are made possible by a combination of a 40% contribution from the University and a 60% contribution from the generous donors who support the Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Trust, which includes the Fondation Hoffmann. The Swiss organization Fondation Hoffmann awards grants to help launch and grow initiatives that provide real-world solutions to pressing societal issues. To learn more about the Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Trust and the Leadership Programme, which is offered in conjunction with these scholarships, visit their website. Both tuition and a stipend (of at least £17,668) will be paid for by the scholarship. Grants cover the total time period for which you are responsible for paying the agreed upon tuition.


About the Scholarship Sponsor:

When it first opened its doors in 1209, Oxford University was the oldest institution of higher education in the entire English-speaking world. As a collegiate institution with an annual budget of about £1.3 billion, the university is among the world’s finest educational institutions. With about 11,700 undergraduates, 10,900 graduate students, and over 13,000 faculty and staff, Oxford University is one of the largest educational institutions in the world. Because of its collegiate structure, the university is able to provide students and faculty with the benefits of both a large, prestigious institution and a small, interdisciplinary academic community.

The Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings have ranked Oxford University number one for the second year running. This success has been attributed to the university’s exceptional research and innovation. Its academics, employees, and alumni have all had profound global impacts thanks to their work at the school throughout many centuries. The most recent assessment of research excellence in UK universities gave Oxford University the highest overall mark, with 48% of its research classified as world-class and another 39% recognized as internationally exceptional.


If you need assistance with your personal statement or interview preparation with a successful graduate of Oxford, you can turn to the Oxbridge Service for assistance. Graduates from Oxford continue to enjoy some of the finest job prospects in the UK, and the university was recently awarded a Gold grade in the Teaching Excellence Framework. In the five years following their graduation, graduates from Oxford may expect to earn an average of £43,000. The University also boasts the greatest rate of students in the UK who place first or get a 2:1.

Help with visas, immigration, and adjusting to life in the United Kingdom are just some of the many services offered by the University of Oxford’s International Office to prospective and current students. In addition, it oversees the preparations for the annual foreign orientation program and the international interviews that take place in the fall. The Oxford Language Centre is a resource for international students at the University of Oxford who would like to improve their English language skills. Any student may seek assistance in confidence from the college’s administrative staff. Only 48% of the University’s research received a 4* ranking, while 39% received a 3* ranking. In addition to having the highest concentration of world-class researchers, Oxford also topped the charts in 12 other areas of study. The University of Oxford is divided into 38 separate institutions, known as “Colleges,” where all first-year undergraduates live. Most of these dorms also provide an important educational function, particularly for first-year students.
