Preparing to submit your application: final checklist

Blavatnik School welcomes the next generation of global public sector leaders.

The Master of Public Policy (MPP) class of 2023 arrived in Oxford today, hailing from 58 different countries, for the start of their journey to navigate the challenges of public policy.

The class of 2023 has the highest number of fully funded students in the history of the MPP, with 79% of students receiving full scholarships and 10% receiving partial funding. In total, almost 90% of this year's class of 147 brilliant students are receiving some funding to support their participation in the programme.

The School is committed to ensuring that an applicant’s financial situation will never be a deterrent to applying for the MPP, and we encourage all of those who would like to study with us next year to explore the range of support available.

Diversity in our classrooms – not just nationality but also age, experiences, and background – enriches our cohorts in ways that set the School apart from others, and this year we are thrilled to welcome an exceptional group of future leaders, including:

And thanks to the incredible generosity of our alumni community, we are also delighted to welcome our inaugural Alumni MPP Scholar, an incredible public servant who designed and implemented a cash transfer scheme benefitting more than 30,000 women in Ecuador.

Applications for the MPPMSc in Public Policy Research and DPhil in Public Policy are open until Friday 5 January 2024 but we strongly recommend submitting your application before the winter holidays. Through our new Public Policy 1+1 pathway, you can apply to study both the MPP and the MSc.

Follow along as our class of 2023 settles in to their new environment; head over to the Blavatnik School’s Instagram, where several students from the new class will be hosting a takeover for the next two weeks.
