Magdalen is fortunate to have a diverse and highly talented community of over 200 postgraduates, currently around a third of the student body. However, it is becoming increasingly more challenging for Magdalen to compete for graduate students against peer institutions, and even some other Oxford Colleges, which can offer more generous funding packages. Another major concern is that the number of scholarships available from foundations and research councils has been diminishing at an alarming rate in recent years. The situation is further exacerbated by the lack of a government-backed funding system, as exists in the US.
As a result, the College and the University have made fundraising for graduate scholarships a major priority. The University has set in place a new funding scheme where every £3 raised by a College for graduate scholarships is matched by £2 from the University.
