Rhodes Scholarship is a life-changing opportunity to join outstanding young people from around the world to study at the University of Oxford, which appears to be one of the best Universities in the World today.
Applications for the 2022 Rhodes Scholarship have been made available to qualified individuals who wish to enroll in courses at Oxford University in the United Kingdom.
The Rhodes scholarship is a fully-funded award that provides successful applicants with a living allowance of £17,310 per year as well as a full tuition remission (2021-22 rate).
Rhodes scholarship also provides a settling allowance, health insurance and covers the costs of visa and two economy flight tickets to travel to and from the United kingdom.

c) Academic Achievement(s)
Have you already completed, or will have completed by July 2023, an undergraduate degree (normally a Bachelor’s degree) with an academic background and grade that is a First Class Honours Degree or equivalent which meets or exceeds the specific entry requirements of your chosen full-time course at the University of Oxford? If Yes you can apply, If you are yet to also Apply for this Scholarship.
In the case of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy courses, the highest classification your University awards, e.g. a Distinction would be considered equivalent to a First Class Honours Degree.

*An Honours degree (or have taken an Honours year) from a University outside of your country or if you have studied to Masters level within your country (with the exception of those studying in Nigeria and Ghana, and, for some countries, those studying medicine). Candidates applying for Rhodes Scholarship may wish to consider applying to the Rhodes Trust’s sister Foundation, The Mandela Rhodes Foundation, to pursue an Honour’s year or a Master’s degree prior to making an application for the Rhodes Scholarship.
d) You Should Have Attained A Sufficiently High Standard English before applying for Rhodes Scholarship.
e) If you are unsuccessful in your initial application for a Rhodes Scholarship, you may only try again once (and it must be for the same constituency), provided you still match the Rhodes Scholarship eligibility requirements.
