Student support

We have a simple but ambitious aim; that no student who is capable of winning a place at Oxford should be stopped from coming here by worries about money.

Nearly a quarter of our undergraduates get some form of financial help from the University.

Student support in numbers

We allocate millions to ensure every undergraduate can afford to study here:

  • Around one in ten students benefits from the highest level of bursary support.
  • Since it was launched in 2012, the Moritz-Heyman Scholarship Programme has provided financial support and on-course assistance to more than 1,000 new UK students with household incomes of £16,000 or less. In 2018/19 we are spending almost £1.8 million on fee reductions for students who receive Moritz-Heyman Scholarships.
  • Last year we made over £8.5 million of financial support available to undergraduates – one of the most generous packages of any UK university. The University and colleges offer hardship funds for students experiencing financial difficulties.
