This university has a vast selection of institutions, 38 colleges and a variety of academic departments.

Fees and Finance

Tuition fees
The tuition fees and the support you receive are determined by your fee status, which will be UK, EU, Overseas or Islands. Fees range from £6,000 – £9,000.

If you are an overseas student, you may be charged higher than UK student’s, however this varies according to your programme of study. You may be liable for an additional college fee too.

Living costs
This is estimated to be between £951 and £1,405 per month in 2015-16. Undergraduate courses usually consist of 3 terms of 8 weeks each, but you may wish to budget over a 9 month period to ensure you also have sufficient funds during the holidays.

Student Life
Every Oxford student is a member of a college, otherwise known as halls of residence at other universities, but they are much more besides that. Your college will be your home for most of you time at Oxford, providing accommodation, meals, a library and IT support. There are a small number of students at each college so it allows for you, close and supportive personal attention for your induction, academic development and welfare.

This personalised attention means that you will face rigorous academic challenges on a weekly basis, encouraging and facilitating your learning in a way that just isn’t possible in a lecture. This also means your tutors will be immediately aware if you need any extra support with any aspect of your course, so help is at hand right away.
As well as this, hundreds of recruiters visit the University each year to meet potential employees and nearly 95% of all Oxford leavers are in work or further study within 6 months after graduating.
