Fees, funding and Colleges


You will need to pay University and College Fees. 

The University fee depends on your fee status. Further information can be found here http://www.ox.ac.uk/students/fees-funding/fees

Fees payable by EU students starting in 2020 will not be affected by Brexit; they will pay the home/EU fee rate for the duration of their course.

EU students (other than citizens of the Republic of Ireland) starting in 2021 will pay fees at the overseas rate. 


All applicants that apply to our Departmental Prize Studentship Competition are automatically considered for full funding from a variety of sources including the MRC, the EP Abraham Research Fund, the Clarendon Fund, and Colleges.  This will cover University and College Fees and funding for living expenses.

Further funding opportunities can be identified on the Universities Fees and Funding site

There are a number of external sources of funding that must be applied for separately.


As Oxford is a collegiate University, you will have to be admitted by a college. The college provides you with the opportunity to interact with other postgraduate students, undergraduates, and experienced academics across all subjects taught in the University. The application form includes an opportunity for you to express a preference for a College. Your supervisor or the Graduate Student Administrator can help you with your choice. Some scholarships require you to join a particular College, often because the College is contributing to the funding.
