Do I have to pay all the fees myself?
In principle, you are responsible for paying all tuition fees (college fees and University fees). However, home students will normally have part of their fees paid for them in at least some years of the course (for 2012 entry, most home students will remain liable for approximately £5625 in years 2-4, and for approximately £9000 in year 1, and it is likely that student loans will be available to cover those costs up to a maximum of £5625 per year in all four years: this leaves £3375 in the first year for which neither loans nor bursaries are available). In addition, you will have to pay for your accommodation and living expenses. Home students may qualify for means-tested financial help with these expenses in the form of NHS bursaries or reduced-rate loans for the final three years of the course. There is currently no financial support for the first year except for a loan to cover the college fee, and unfortunately the University cannot offer any help with funding. Further details of the Department of Health’s bursaries are available from the NHS Student Bursaries website (http://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/ and then follow the "Students" link on the menu). Further information on the University's fees is available on the Fees and Funding website, where there is also a specific set of pages dealing with funding for medical students (http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate_courses/student_funding/medical_students.html).
