One of the advantages of Oxford's college system is that students have all the benefits of a large, international university while living in a small, friendly community. This means that students have support available from fellow students and staff at a college level, and their department, as well as the Oxford University Student Union and the wider University.
I receive a Moritz-Heyman scholarship, which is for students from low-income backgrounds. As well as funding and tuition fee reductions, it provides support for an internship during the vacation.
Oxford offers generous financial support to eligible students. Find out more from our Fees and funding pages.
Student Counselling Service
The counselling service staffed by fully trained counsellors, psychologists and psychotherapists is available to help you address personal or emotional problems that get in the way of having a good experience at Oxford. Its aim is to help you realise your full academic potential and develop greater ability to take decisions for yourself that effect real change. Alongside individual and group sessions there are workshops and self-help materials available.
I was convinced somebody had made a mistake letting me in to Oxford... My counsellor helped me to understand why I felt a fraud and we worked on how I could change the way I thought about myself. I got a first in Finals.
The University is committed to maintaining a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all members of the University community are respected. The University has a network of Harassment Advisors in colleges and departments and runs a dedicated harassment line.

Childcare Services manages nursery places for children aged four months to five years. Four colleges operate their own nurseries independently. Two holiday play schemes are available to further support childcare for older-age children. The University’s Childcare Fund is available for students in financial hardship with care and related costs.
