Funding your course
What will it cost?
Prospective applicants are naturally anxious about the costs of a university education but a range of financial support is available, the level of which is dependent on your fee status and household income. The details of the University tuition fee charge for UK and EU students and the financial support available to you can be found on the University’s Student Funding web pages. Students with Home or EU fee status are not charged a College tuition fee.
Potential applicants from outside the European Union should look at the section of the website dedicated to overseas students.
In addition to University tuition fee you will need to budget for living costs. These include your accommodation and food, and general living expense such as books, clothes, travel, and socialising. An overview of the estimated living costs for an undergraduate at Oxford is available on the University website. For information on the accommodation and food costs at Magdalen please click here.
Financial support from Magdalen
Magdalen aims to ensure that if you are offered a place at the College, you should not be prevented from taking up that place or completing your studies for lack of funds.
We are able to offer a significant amount of financial support to students who are experiencing financial hardship and this support comes from a number of sources including the Junior Members’ Fund, the Rent Relief Fund, and the College’s Student Support Fund.
We also give a large number of Scholarships, Awards, and Prizes. These are awarded for academic excellence and range from £40 to £350. In addition, all Magdalen students are entitled to a substantial Travel Grant if they wish to undertake travel which has a direct bearing on their course of study, and all undergraduates are now entitled in addition to a Research Grant for projects related to their course, thanks to the contributions of old members of the College to the Annual Fund. The College also awards a small number of grants for travel that is less directly concerned with the course of study. Finally, Magdalen awards its students a substantial amount in Vacation Study Grants every year.
