Information on fees and funding

The University provides information on fees, living costs and sources of funding on the University student finance website.

You can use the fees calculator to calculate the level of fees for which you will be liable, and the living costs' page to assess how much life at university will cost.

For medicine-specific information on funding please see on the University medicine funding website.

Should you need any assistance with any aspect of student finance, see the list of student finance contact details. Please note that detailed assessments for fee status cannot be carried out until an application for admission has been made.

Fee status

University tuition fees are charged at one of four rates depending on your fee status: Home/EU (standard), Home/EU (ELQ), Islands, Overseas. A government-imposed quota restricts us to a maximum of fourteen Medicine students each year who are classified as overseas for fees purposes. It is therefore recommended that you resolve any uncertainty about your fee status as soon as possible after you have submitted your application for admission.

Do be aware that citizenship does not in itself determine your status for fees purposes. The issue is decided according to the facts of each case, having regard to where the student has been 'ordinarily resident' for the three year period to 31 August prior to commencing a course at a British University. In most cases, the main purpose of this residence must not have been for educational purposes.

Advice from the University on determining status for fees purposes can be found on the University fee status page. General information on fees status is also available from the UK Council for International Student Affairs (see  www.ukcisa.org.uk), a national advisory body that provides advice for international students. Please note that UKCISA does not carry out assessments of individual circumstances.

If you would like specialised guidance after you have made your application, do contact the University’s Fees Clerk (fees.clerk@admin.ox.ac.uk), making sure you attach the questionnaire available for download from the University fee status page. Please note that detailed assessments cannot be carried out until an application for admission has been made.

Who can I contact to get advice on my likely fee status?

Unfortunately if you have not yet made an application we are unable to provide advice on your likely fee status. General advice from the University on determining status for fees purposes can be found on the University fee status page. Further information on fees status is also available from the UK Council for International Student Affairs (see  www.ukcisa.org.uk), a national advisory body that provides advice for international students. Please note that UKCISA does not carry out assessments of individual circumstances.

If you have made an application to the University and would like to pursue further the matter of your status for fees purposes, please complete the form available for download on the University fee status page or write to: Fees Clerk, Examination Schools, 75-81 High Street, Oxford, OX1 4BG, with such evidence as you are able to provide, and we will be pleased to advise you further on the matter.

Scholarships

We regret that there are few, if any, scholarships available for A100 Medicine in Oxford due to the nature and duration of the course and the costs involved.

NHS bursaries for 2012 entry

UK students are eligible to receive an NHS bursary in years 5 and 6 of the Oxford course (the last two years of the clinical course). The NHS bursary scheme was revised for those starting their courses in October 2012: the new package of support will provide new students with a small non-means tested grant, a means tested bursary and a reduced rate non-means-tested loan. The loan will be provided by Student Finance England. A medical student studying outside London could receive a non-means tested grant of £1,000, a means tested bursary of up to £4,395  and a non-means tested loan of up to £2,324. Further information is provided by the Department of Health: Review of NHS student support, 18 July 2011

EU students

The latest tuition fee rates for Home/EU students are available on the fees and living costs website.

If you are from another EU country you will normally be eligible for a UK government loan to cover your tuition fees. For more information visit the Student Finance Services EU website.

Overseas students

The latest tuition fee rates for overseas students are available on the fees and living costs website. Additionally to University fees, overseas students are also liable to pay college fees (£5,920 a year in 2011/12). Overseas students on the A100 Medicine course pay fees at the pre-clinical rate for three years and at the higher clinical rate (with a lower college fee) for a further three years.

We regret that there are few, if any, scholarships available for A100 Medicine in Oxford due to the nature and duration of the course and the costs involved. You can undertake a full funding search using the University funding search engine.

Clinical course fees

During the 3rd year of the course students apply for entry to a clinical school at which to complete the clinical stage (years 4 to 6) of their medical training.  Entry to the Oxford Clinical School is competitive, however, a joint admissions scheme is in place with the Universities of Cambridge and London to ensure that all suitably qualified Oxford pre-clinical students will be allocated a clinical school place within the scheme (students are asked to rank schools in order of preference).  Further information on admission to the Oxford Clinical Course can be found at on the clinical study website.  Please note that the Oxford Clinical School only accepts applications from Oxford and Cambridge pre-clinical students.

Fee liability for Home/EU students remains the same throughout the pre-clinical and clinical section of course, even if students do not stay in Oxford for the clinical stages. This is because medical students are deemed to be on the same course of study throughout the six years.

Fee liability for Overseas students is higher during the clinical years although the college fee is lower and it is rarely possible to change fee status from Overseas to Home/EU.

Information on University and college fees for the clinical section of the course is available on the fees and funding website.
