Fees and Finance

Financial Declaration


If you receive an offer of a place Wolfson will require you to complete a Financial Declaration form to meet your financial condition of admission. This aims to ensure that you are fully aware of the expected fees and living costs associated with your chosen course of study at Oxford. It is your opportunity to consider very carefully the financial commitment you are entering into, and to take full responsibility for it. If you cannot pay your fees and living costs, you will not normally be able to continue your studies. Financial Declarations must be submitted to the Academic Administrator before the 1 August.


Please refer to the University Website for more information on the Financial Declaration and the types of supporting documentation you need to provide.


University & College Fees


Tuition and college fees for the full academic year are payable to Wolfson College annually in advance of the start of term in which study commences. All self-financed students are required to pay the University Fee and College Fee (currently £2,659 for 2013-14) by the stated deadline each academic year until fee liability has ended. You will receive an invoice by email at the start of September.


If you are a grant-supported student, the College will invoice your funding body directly at the beginning of each academic year. Student loans are normally paid directly to the College by the lender.


Wolfson College does not offer the option of payment by instalments.


Continuation Charge


If it should happen that you continue to be registered for your programme of study beyond the standard fee liability which is normally the same as the standard length of your programme, a continuation charge will be levied by the University. The charge is £400 per term in 2013-14 (there are three terms each year). The same rate will apply to all students (regardless of Home/EU or Overseas fee status). In addition, a College continuation charge (Graduate Member Charge) of £315 per annum (2013-14 rate) will be payable after fee liability has ceased and until the submission of your thesis. 


Financial Support


Unfortunately, Wolfson College will be unable to contribute towards the funding of your studies, and or living expenses either in your first or in any subsequent year, unless you have already applied to, and are awarded an academic scholarship linked to the College through your Department. The College is able to offer small grants towards expenses for fieldwork and attendance at conferences.
