There are currently two elective overseas modules, for which students cover the cost of travel and accommodation. The school will bear the general cost for teaching provisions such as conference facilities hire and any networking events. In addition, students may undertake student-led 'treks' to overseas companies or similar, with a view to understanding what it is like to do business in different geographic locations. Students meet potential recruiters and alumni of the school in professional settings and for informal social events. The number of treks undertaken by students is at their discretion and they are entirely optional. Students usually cover their own costs, which can differ markedly based on the geography visited and the duration. Please note that this course requires that you are primarily taught in Oxford, and you will need to incur travel and accommodation costs to attend the course if you do not live in the Oxford area.

Living costs

In addition to your course fees, you will need to ensure that you have adequate funds to support your living costs for the duration of your course.

For the 2023-24 academic year, the range of likely living costs for full-time study is between c. £1,290 and £1,840 for each month spent in Oxford. Full information, including a breakdown of likely living costs in Oxford for items such as food, accommodation and study costs, is available on our living costs page. When planning your finances for any future years of study in Oxford beyond 2023-24, it is suggested that you allow for potential increases in living expenses of 5% or more each year – although this rate may vary significantly depending on how the national economic situation develops. UK inflationary increases will be kept under review and this page updated.

If you are studying part-time your living costs may vary depending on your personal circumstances but you must still ensure that you will have sufficient funding to meet these costs for the duration of your course.
