Tuition and college fees for the full academic year are collected annually by the College Accounts Office on behalf of the University of Oxford.

Students are responsible for ensuring that all fees are paid by the stated deadline each academic year, and will receive an invoice by email, usually in early September. If you are a grant-supported student, the College will usually be able to invoice your funding body directly, as long as all the relevant contact information has been provided. Student loans are normally paid directly to the College by the lender.

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

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. 

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

Financial Support

For resources relating to financial support and bursaries available for current graduate students please see our Financial Support section.

Information for prospective graduate students is available at Scholarships.

For those seeking additional financial assistance to support graduate study at Oxford please see the University's Fees and Funding section.
