Fees and Funding

Fees

The University of Oxford's undergraduate fees and funding pages have lots of helpful information about the latest university fees and support available for students, and we recommend that all applicants read them thoroughly.

Annual fees and government support will vary depending on whether you are from the UK and EU, or whether you are from a non-EU country, so please ensure you have read all the information carefully. 

Financial Support for Undergraduate Students

In addition to the financial support offered by the University, Oriel provides a range of further financial support via the following means:

Financial Assistance Funds

The College is able to assist students who have run into unexpected financial difficulties. If you require financial assistance as a result of special circumstances, please contact the Treasurer's Assistant (treasurers.secretary@oriel.ox.ac.uk). Grants are normally made for specific needs.

Bursaries

The College supports students by contributing to half of the cost of the Oxford Opportunity Bursaries, which are granted by the University solely on the basis of financial need. The College also has funds for a limited number of discretionary bursaries for students in a wide variety of subjects and students from specific regions of the UK, in particular the Midlands.

Discretionary bursaries are usually awarded by the Student Financial Support Committee when a continuing need is identified.

Estranged Students

Oriel College is committed to supporting students who study without family support or a stable home environment. If you are in this situation, please contact the Academic Registrar (academic.registrar@oriel.ox.ac.uk) and they will be able to support you. 

Support that Oriel may be able to offer:

  • Financial support through the Student Financial Support funds
  • Accommodation support with a contract that can be for a full year, on the same terms offered to graduates students
  • Support in a welfare capacity

The University also supports estranged students both financially and through the counselling service, and students may also be directed to these resources.

Disabilities

If you are registered with a disability and have questions about your funding for disability-related needs, please contact the Academic Registrar (academic.registrar@oriel.ox.ac.uk).

Academic Resources

Oriel provides a wide range of funds to support students with the associated costs of their courses via travel grants, vacation grants, and help with fees for supplementary courses. Please get in touch with academic.support@oriel.ox.ac.uk for more information.
