Applying for January 2023 entry

This year, we have seen a substantial increase in applications from students in Nigeria and want to ensure that we can support as many of these students as possible through the visa application process. In order for us to do this we have had to take the difficult decision to close applications earlier than planned for the January 2023 entry. The deadline for applications from students from Nigeria will now be 7 October 2022.

Please note that due to unprecedented demand, we will only be accepting applications for all 2023 intakes from students applying through one of our contracted agents. You can see a full list of our agents below. Please contact the Nigeria office if you need further support and guidance.

If you are made an offer you will be required to make an £8,000 deposit payment to secure your place at Oxford Brookes. The deposit will be deducted from your first tuition fees payment. Details of how to make this payment will be communicated in your offer letter. If you are starting in January and pay the full deposit by 4 November 2022, you will be eligible for our £2,000 International Student Scholarship
