Fees and funding
Information on fees and funding
The University provides information on fees, living costs and sources of funding on the University's Fees and Funding website.
You can use the Undergraduate fees, funding and scholarship tool 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, please contact the Student Funding Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that detailed assessments for fee status cannot be carried out until an application for admission has been made.
University tuition fees are charged at one of three rates depending on your fee status: Home (standard), Overseas and EU (please note that EU fee status applies only to students who commenced study before 1st August 2021). 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 fee 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 Student Fees Team, 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 and return this to the Student Fees Team, with such evidence as you are able to provide, and they would be pleased to advise you further on the matter.
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 Undergraduate fees, funding and scholarship search tool.
The latest tuition fee rates for Home students are available on the fees and living costs website.
The University has published information on what UK government funding is available for UK students.
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). For more information about funding for Medical students at Oxford, please see the University's page on Medical course funding.
students FROM THE EU, EEA and Switzerland
Please note that EU fee status applies only to students who commenced study before 1st August 2021 and is no longer applicable to students who commenced their studies in 2021/22 or later.
If you are an EU national and do not live in the UK then you are now likely to be charged Overseas fees.
Students with settled and pre-settled status granted under the EU Settlement Scheme and some other categories of students who work in the UK can qualify for Home fee status as long as they meet the residence criteria. For more information about fee status, please visit the UK Council for International Students' (UKCISA) website.
The latest tuition fee rates for overseas students are available on the fees and living costs website. Overseas students on the A100 Medicine course pay fees at the pre-clinical rate for three years and at the higher clinical rate 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 Undergraduate fees, funding and scholarship search tool.
Clinical course fees
Further information on admission to the Oxford Clinical Course can be found at on the clinical study website.
Fee liability for Home students remains the same throughout the pre-clinical and clinical section of course. 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 and it is rarely possible to change fee status from Overseas to Home.
Information on University and college fees for the clinical section of the course is available on the Medicine course listing.
