The cost of study at Oxford falls into two categories, the annual course fee and living expenses. Visit the University of Oxford Fees and Funding web pages for up-to-date information on the cost of study at Oxford.

It is also important to consider other costs you might incur as part of your application, for example to obtain a visa or cover language tests. Information about visa and immigration requirements for international students can be found on the University of Oxford Student Visa & Immigration webpage. For English language requirements please refer to the individual course's web page. 

Funding Opportunities

The University offers a variety of scholarship programmes based on academic excellence, to give the brightest applicants from around the world the opportunity to pursue graduate study. Over 700 fully-funded scholarships are available for new graduate students in 2021 from the University, our colleges and supporters.

Please take a look at our Fees, Funding and Scholarship site and input your details to see what options may be open to you. As some funders have specific requirements the Oncology Graduate Studies Office are unable to advise further.  

Most fully funded opportunities at Oxford are only available to students about to start a new course. Once you are registered as a student, there are very few substantive scholarships available, so it is vital to explore your options early.

Academic Futures is a series of scholarship programmes that will address underrepresentation and help improve equality, diversity and inclusion in our graduate student body. You simply need to submit your completed application by the 8th January deadline, and if you are eligible you'll automatically be considered. Please take a look at the website for eligibility criteria and further information. 

University Scholarships

All complete applications received by 12 noon (UK time) on Friday 8 January 2021 will automatically be considered for all relevant competitive University and funding opportunities, including the Clarendon Fund, Medical Research Council funding, and various College funds. Please refer to the Funding and Costs webpage for this course for further details relating to funded scholarships and divisional funding opportunities.  

Funded studentships are highly competitive and are awarded to the highest ranked applicant(s) based on the advertised entry requirements for each programme of study.

Clinical Research Training Fellowships:

Opportunities for Clinical Research Training Fellowships (CRTF) are advertised on the Department of Oncology Careers webpage and the University of Oxford job vacancy webpage. In line with the normal duration of CRTFs the clinical DPhil projects are usually structured for completion in three years.
