Sources of funding
Welcome to the student funding pages, where you will find information on the different ways in which we may be able to help to support you financially whilst you are studying with us. On this page you will find brief outlines of the types of support you may be eligible for. On the left of the page you will find links to further information. Please note that these pages contain information regarding funding for students applying for Undergraduate Certificates, Diplomas, and Advanced Diplomas; and Postgraduate Certificates and Diplomas. For information regarding funding for Master's and DPhil programmes, please see the Oxford Fees, Funding, and Scholarship Search.
Whether or not you already have an undergraduate degree will determine the type of financial support you are eligible for. If you do not already have an undergraduate degree you may apply for a non means-tested Student Loan to cover all or part of your fees. If you already have an undergraduate degree and are on a low income, or if you do not wish to apply for a loan, we have Departmental bursaries for which you may apply.
Please look through these pages and then contact us at email@example.com if you would like to discuss your particular circumstances.
Sources of funding
Student Loans for students on Undergraduate Certificates (including Foundation Certificates and the Certificate of Higher Education), Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas:
Students on Undergraduate courses who do not have an undergraduate degree are eligible to apply for a non means-tested student loan for all or part of their fees. If you apply for a student loan for all or part of your fees you may still apply for a Departmental bursary if you are on a low income (see below). For information on student loans, including details on whether and how you would repay the loan, please see our page on student loans.
Part-time fee grants for continuing students:
If you intermitted before academic year 2012-13, and are now returning to the first or second year of your course, you may be able to apply for a part-time fee grant. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for full details. Students who started their after September 2012 are not eligible to apply.
Departmental bursaries for UK based students on Undergraduate and Postgraduate Certificates, Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas:
If you are on a low income (up to approximately £25,000) you may be eligible to apply for a Departmental bursary, whether or not you also apply for a student loan. For more information, please see our page on Departmental bursaries.
Access to Learning Fund:
The government provides the University with funds to help students on very low incomes with childcare costs. Access to Learning Fund grants cannot be used for paying tuition fees. For further information please see our page on the Access to Learning Fund.
We advise international students to contact their local British Council, who can advise on studying in the UK. If you are on a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma course you may find funding opportunities on the Oxford Fees, Funding, and Scholarship Search. For more information, please visit our page on international students.
Disabled Students' Allowance:
This is a non means-tested allowance aimed at helping people with a disability or learning difficulty (e.g. dyslexia) to study on the same basis as other students. If you think this may apply to you, please contact email@example.com or speak to the Access Officer on +44(0)1865 280355. You can find further details of the allowance on the DirectGov website, or on our Disabled Students' Allowance page. Students on Masters and DPhil programmes should contact the University Disability Advisory Service
Professional and Career Development Loans:
If you are taking a course in order to develop your career, it may be worth considering a Professional and Career Development Loan. You may qualify if you are taking a postgraduate course or a second Bachelors' degree. For details please visit this site.
