Fees and expenses

University composition fees
Classification of students for fee purposes
College fees
Maintenance and living expenses
Students are liable to pay tuition fees to the University and to their college for each term of any course (whether taught or research) they undertake until the course has been completed or a prescribed maximum has been paid, whether or not they are working in Oxford for that term. However, the University does not charge tuition fees beyond the specified maximum even if the student needs more time to complete the course. There may be, however, college continuation fees (see individual college sections). In addition to tuition fees students must budget for their own maintenance (including accommodation) and for the living expenses of any dependants who may accompany them. Although liability is incurred on a termly basis, colleges - who are responsible for collecting both University and college fees - may require students to pay a full year's fees in advance. For some courses at the Business School, fees are charged for the whole programme with limited refunds for years or terms not started.

University and college fees are fixed for each year, and are subject to variation between one year and the next.

University composition fees
University fees for full-time students for the full academic year 2005-6 are as follows:

Home and EU rates
For most courses, fees are based on public award rates set by the Department for Education and Skills, which are not yet available for 2005-6. For guidance only, the fees for full-time study in 2004-5 are:

(a) BCL, MJur, Diplomas in Theology and Legal Studies, Postgraduate Certificate in Education, Postgraduate Diploma in Educational Studies, £1,150.

(b) All other Diplomas and Certificates, MSt, MTh, MFA, BPhil, MPhil, MSc, MLitt and DPhil, £3,010. Special fee rates apply for some courses and are listed below.

Channel Islands and Isle of Man rates
For courses listed under category (a) above, separate fee rates apply for students from the Channel Islands and Isle of Man, which are set after discussion between UK universities and the Island governments. Further information is available from the Graduate Studies Office. For courses listed under category (b) above, Islands fees are set at the home/EU rate.

Overseas rates
These fees are set by the University in advance to allow overseas students to budget properly. Fee levels vary according to subject. For students commencing graduate study in 2005-6, fee levels will be as follows:

(a) MTh in Applied Theology; programmes in the Faculty of Philosophy; the second and subsequent years of research programmes in Social Sciences, £8,540.

(b) Programmes in Humanities other than those listed under (a) and (c); taught programmes in Social Sciences other than those listed under special fee rates; the first year of research programmes in Social Sciences; programmes in the Departments of Mathematics, Statistics and Computing Laboratory other than those listed under (c); programmes in Archaeology, Anthropology, Geography and the Environment, £9,960.

(c) Programmes in the Faculty of Music and the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art; programmes in Physical Sciences and Biological Sciences; MSc in Computer Science and Diploma and MSc in Applied Statistics; programmes in the Department of Experimental Psychology, £11,380.

(d) Programmes in Clinical Medicine, Human Anatomy and Genetics, Pathology, Pharmacology and Physiology, other than those listed under special fee rates, £20,870. Annual increases in fee levels should be expected.

Applicants who are in doubt about the fee level applicable to their chosen programme of study should refer to the University website, where the fee for each course of study will be specified, or contact the relevant department or faculty office.

Special fee rates
Some programmes fall outside the general fee categories listed above. The 2005-6 fee levels for some of these programmes are:
Master of Business Administration (full time), £26,000
Executive Master of Business Administration (part time), £37,000 (includes college fees, accommodation and materials)
MSc in Financial Economics, £19,500
MSc in Management Research and MSc in Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management, £10,000
MSc in Forced Migration and MSc in Economics for Development:
home/EU rate, £6,520; overseas rate, £9,960.
MPhil in Economics and MPhil in Development Studies: home/EU rate (first year), £6,520; home/EU rate (second year) standard MPhil home/EU rate; overseas rate, £9,960.
MSc and Postgraduate Diploma in Science and Medicine of Athletic Performance, £11,380
Foreign Service Programme fee information is available from the department website (http://www2.qeh.ox.ac.uk/oufsp/).


Part-time programmes
Some programmes may be studied on a part-time basis. Part-time fees are usually set at half the applicable full-time fee rate over twice the applicable length of time for full-time students. Special fee rates apply to a number of programmes offered by the Department for Continuing Education. Applicants should contact the Department or refer to the website for further information (www.conted.ox.ac.uk).

Classification of students for fee purposes
The definitions adopted by the University for classifying students as 'home and EU' or 'overseas' students for fee purposes are given in the Classification of Student for fee purposes page. However, these definitions (and in particular the phrase 'ordinarily resident') need interpretation, and applicants in doubt about their classification should explain their circumstances to the Fees Clerk (telephone +44 (0)1865 270203) or to their college, if they have been offered a college place.

College fees
Each college charges a fee which is separate from, and in addition to, University composition fees. College fees vary from college to college, and according to the course and length of study, but do not distinguish between home, EU, and overseas students. At the time of going to press college fees for full-time graduate students for 2005-6 are not confirmed; there is not expected to be any major change from the range of fees for the full academic year given below:

(a) BCL, MJur, Diplomas in Theology and Legal Studies, Special Diplomas in Social Studies, and Social Administration up to £4,320 max
(b) MTh on application from the accepting college
(c) All other Diplomas and Special Diplomas, all Certificates, MSt, BPhil, MPhil, MSc, MLitt, and DPhil, £1,750 to £2,100
(d) MBA, £2,800

College fees are the responsibility of the individual colleges, from whom further information on their fees, and confirmation of the fee to be charged for a particular course, can be obtained.

University employees becoming graduate students are advised to contact colleges directly regarding fee and accommodation arrangements.

Maintenance and living expenses
As well as allowing for University and college fees, prospective students must budget for living expenses while at Oxford. These vary according to individual needs and tastes; the cost of accommodation is a significant factor, as private rented accommodation in Oxford is more expensive than in many other British cities, particularly for married students. In addition to ordinary living expenses, students need to take account of the cost of food, clothing, other personal requirements, books, stationery, any special equipment, travel to and from Oxford, thesis preparation in appropriate cases, and any research expenses (e.g. fieldwork or travel (possibly outside the United Kingdom) to consult material not available in Oxford).

It must also be borne in mind that these costs are liable to rise in line with inflation. Students from other countries should also allow, as regards their whole budget, for the possibility of fluctuations in exchange rates.

For the academic year 2005-6, it is estimated that a single student spending 12 months in Oxford, and living in college accommodation, would need at least £9,000 to cover living expenses, excluding the cost of travel to and from Oxford.

Rosemary. Sorry that my post was a bit long, but I think it will answer the second part of your question. I cannot tell you anything about when oxford is sending out its acceptance letters as I personally did not apply there.

Good luck to you and your friend!

Hi all,

I will be applying to Oxbridge Unis next year. Could anyone please give me an idea of their academic profile (high2.1, 1st, class ranking, etc) and if they have got accepted/ rejected etc. It will help me form an idea about the standard of entry at Oxbridge.

Cheers!

Hi - I don't know about Oxford. Yet, as the admissions process is quite similar to Cambridge, the recent news from CA might be useful to you: for this year's LLM course there are about 1000 applicants. Therefore, it will take at least another month to hear from Cambridge. According to the office they will have assessed all applications by the end of March only. I gather Oxford has more or less the same amount of applicants and thus the same time table...
Hope this info was helpful.
Take care - Diego

Hi, Mimcho

The source of my information is the central admissions office, who told a friend of mine that all applicants should be assessed
by the end of March.

Thanks for the info according to which
offers are being sent out already. I'll tell my friend. Is your source a reliable one? And since when are they sending out
offers?
Thanks for answering these 2 questions and take care - Diego

The Board of Graduate Studies does take time to respond, the Faculty of law at Cambridge has however emailed at least some of the accepted candidates directly to inform them as to their successful application pending notification and condition of offers being sent by the BGS. I don't know if this is just for internal candidates though as I don't know any non-Cambridge applicants.

As for Oxford I haven't heard anything as yet.

I assume the Faculty is advised not to inform external candidates as to their decision, i.e. the Committee's decision on recommending an offer to the BGS. My friend has not had any news from the BGS yet, and was told by the Faculty that all applications should most probably be assessed by the end of March. Thus, the BGS will sent out most offers in April, I gather. Is that normal ?

Applied to Oxford and Cambridge but haven't heard of them yet. I'll tell as soon as I have some information.

By the way, would you recommend a LLM in the US rather than in the UK (I got an admission offer from Cornell Law School, but also from the LSE and really looking forward to Oxbridge !). I'm French and would probably like to work in the US later (Oxford vs Cornell...??).

Thanks and good luck to you all !

hi tom ,

this is shiv from India.
US is definitely a better bet. perhaps even better than Oxbridge for the simple reason that with an American LLM , US and UK are both open for working. whereas with an Oxbridge degree , u shut out US completely and can look for employment in UK alone.
Though Cornell is great I believe Columbia/NYU are better in terms of job prospects.

It's useful information. I think I'll choose the US in the end (still waiting for Columbia and Harvard's answers actually).

Hi tom,

does that mean you havent applied to NYU at all!
Another word of adivice for you, as i have been through the whole process my self last year ;

Most of the rankings on the internet can be quite misleading, especially on the us news .com et al.

Your choise of university must be guided by the subject you are chosing. For example if you are looking for a taxc LLM then NYU is the place. If you are looking for Corporate Laws then Columbia/Harvard/NYU are top notch.

Hope you find this of some use in chosing your destination ultimately.
Wishing you luck with Harvrard. you and I know how steep the challenge is!
BTW I do speak some french .
