Fees and Funding

Welcome to Student Fees and Funding at Oxford

Worried about the cost of going to university? Oxford’s ambition is to ensure that no one with outstanding academic potential is deterred from studying here because of their background, personal circumstances, or finances. We offer one of the most generous support packages available for UK students, with around one in four students currently receiving an annual, non-repayable bursary from Oxford.

What Our Students Say...

"Having money problems is something I’ve experienced my whole life, and to come to university and get some breathing space where I can focus in on my work is amazing."

"Money has never been something that I've worried about at university and that's entirely down to the bursary support [at Oxford]."

"I hugely appreciate the opportunities the funding [from Oxford] provides. It has enabled me to participate socially in societies and friendships at university without guilt over spending money or fear of missing out because I have to prioritise spending on other things."
