Costs and Funding
Your main costs will be your living expenses and your fees (comprising University & College fees)
- Living expenses, which include rent, food etc., are between c. £1,290 and £1,840 for each month spent in Oxford for a single person, depending on your lifestyle. You will find it useful to read the information provided at How much will it cost to live in Oxford?
- The University tuition fees vary substantially, depending on your chosen course and your fee status. Your fee status is determined by your nationality and country of residence.
