Cost of study

There are three types of expense that prospective graduates need to account for when calculating the cost of graduate study:

University tuition fee

Fees are payable for each year of your course, and the rate you pay depends on the University's assessment of your fee status as 'Home/EU' or 'Overseas' and on the qualifications you already hold. Most courses have a maximum period for which fees are payable.

College fee

The college fee covers academic facilities and other services provided by your college. The fee, which you will need to pay each year to your college for the period you are liable for fees, does not include accommodation or meal charges and is payable in addition to the University tuition fee.

The college fee for graduate students studying in 2015/16 is £2,848

Living costs

Prospective graduates must have adequate funding to cover all living expenses during their study at Oxford, at the level of a reasonable minimum established by the University.
