You should try applying for scholarships AFTER you got the offer letters, as that serves the best prove that you're WORTH the scholarship.
Oxford...likely to secure some sort of sponsorship. But then again, sponsorships for certain courses are not readily available. Malaysian firms do no see the value of sponsoring someone to read history or theology at Oxford.
LSE, not a big deal as there would be about 100 Malaysians receiving offers every year. Securing a place is not a definite proof of one's worthiness of a scholarship. That goes for Imperial and UCL too.
