The Peter Thomason Fund was set up using money received from Mr John Thomason, an alumnus of the College, in honour of his late brother Peter Thomason (also an alumnus).
The Peter Thomason Postgraduate Studentship offers one fully-funded studentship for an overseas student (overseas status course fees and maintenance) for either an MSc or M(Res) in any of the following subjects: Mathematics, Statistics, Engineering, Physics, or Chemistry. For a list of courses in these departments please consult:
We will consider all eligible applicants to Oxford for our college scholarships, regardless of whether or not you state Jesus College as your preferred college on your graduate application form. If we offer you a Peter Thomason Studentship we will also offer you a place at Jesus College, which will take the place of any earlier college offer you may have. There is no separate application for this studentship; you simply need to apply for your graduate course by the relevant January deadline.
