Student Fees and Funding

The work of Student Fees and Funding supports the University’s strategic aim to ensure that our undergraduate and graduate students with outstanding academic potential can benefit from an Oxford course, whatever their background. In particular, the team focuses on:

  • administration of a range of financial support worth £10m p.a. (including undergraduate bursaries, hardship funding, international opportunities and other on-course awards);
  • management of a graduate scholarship portfolio of over 150 existing scholarship schemes worth £18.5m pa and a small but growing number of undergraduate scholarship schemes;
  • management of several student loan schemes including over £60m of Student Loans Company (SLC)tuition fee loans and $17m of US federal loans;
  • management of the annual fee setting process, the related publication of fees and the administration of the termly ‘Fee Schedule’;
  • co-ordination of the Continuation Charge collection and the administration of formal non-payment of fees procedures;
  • provision of information relating to all aspects of fees and funding, supporting prospective and current students and the collegiate University;
  • key contributions to policy and development in relation to University fees and student support for both postgraduates and undergraduates;
  • working within the wider University to develop and implement new funding opportunities for Oxford’s applicants from both the UK and around the world, to ensure we can attract the most able candidates;
  • working on student support fundraising, particularly the Oxford Graduate Scholarship Matched Fund and Moritz-Heyman Challenge Fund, in close conjunction with the Development Office.
