Oxford Bursaries and Fee Reductions

The University has a generous bursary scheme for UK and EU undergraduates from lower-income households, to cover some of the costs associated with living in Oxford, and also to enable students to take advantage of opportunities at Oxford.

Type of award: 
Welfare and hardship
Eligibility or selection criteria: 

Home (i.e. UK) or EU Oxford undergraduates from lower-income households who are studying for their first undergraduate degree, an undergraduate Medicine degree (including Graduate Entry Medicine) or for a PGCE. In order to receive a bursary and/or tuition fee reduction, you must be entitled to support from the UK government and you must have been financially assessed by your funding agency.

Amount awarded: 

Your Local Authority will assess your residual household income, and Oxford will make bursary payments based on this assessment: see the University website

How and when to apply: 

No application is necessary, but to be automatically considered, you and your parents/sponsors need to give permission, in your application for UK government maintenance support, for the University to have access to your residual household income (RHI) figure and must not opt out of giving the University permission to view their data.

For details of when you will be notified if you are eligible for a bursary, and when you will need to have your financial assessment completed by, see the University website.
