Fees and Funding

Fees are paid for each year of study and increase annually. You are required to pay both University tuition fees and college fees.

Your college fees cover services provided by the college, but do not include accommodation or meals.

For further information about both tuition and college fees, please visit the University website

Living Costs

Other expenses incurred whilst studying at Oxford will vary according to individual needs.   In addition to your tuition and college fees, you will need to ensure that you have adequate funds to support your living costs for the duration of your course.

Overnight accommodation may be required on the course dates, dependent on where your home is located.  The department estimates that accommodation costs can range from £70 per night in a College to £150 per night in a hotel (single rate). Students should also factor in costs for an evening meal.

Scholarships and Funding

Information on graduate scholarships and awards offered by the University and external agencies can be found on the Student Funding Services website.

Competition for awards is high and applicants are advised to explore all possible sources of funding.  If you apply by the relevant January deadline and fulfil the eligibility criteria you will be automatically considered for a number of scholarships. Over two thirds of Oxford scholarships require nothing more than the standard course application but you should check if any of these require an additional application.

A number of Research Council awards are available each year from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), and Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
