Finance and Fee Information
The College Fee is charged in addition to the relevant University Fee, and increases annually in line with inflation. The College Fee covers academic facilities and other services that are provided by the College; it does not include accommodation or meals.
The college fee for graduate students studying in 2016/17 is £2,993.
(BCL, MJur, BPhil, MPhil, MSc, MSt, MLitt, DPhil [including Probationer Research Students])
The college fee for the following courses is not charged at the standard graduate rate:
Overseas students in Year 1 of Graduate Entry Medicine (undergraduate rate - £9,250)

A College continuation charge of £100 per term is payable by all registered DPhil students after completing four years (12 terms) of DPhil study.
Information on the University fee can be found on the University's website.
Single graduate students need to allow at least £12,028 a year for living costs.
Graduates are eligible to apply for extraordinary academic expenses grants as follows:
- 1 year taught degree students: £300 general allowance and a £50 book allowance
- Students on research degrees lasting less than 3 years and 2 year taught degrees: £550 general allowance
- Students on research degrees lasting 3 years or more: £750 general allowance
The College is concerned that students' academic work should not be adversely affected by financial hardship. Apart from the normal student loan (available to UK students), there are two main sources of funding available to students affected by unforeseen financial difficulties:
Grants from the Access to Learning Fund (government money, providing a supplementary source of financial assistance for publicly funded students suffering financial hardship).
College and University hardship funds (these are aimed primarily at those who are in financial hardship, but who are not eligible for a grant from the Access to Learning Fund. Help may be given either as a grant or a loan, or both). The College has some resources for this purpose arising from certain bequests in the past.
Students seeking information on any of these funds should first contact the Hardship Officer, Dr Conrad Leyser.
