Fees & Expenses

Matriculated students at the University of Oxford are liable for fees and living expenses. Further information about these is listed below.

Course Fees

Course fees are charged each academic year until fee liability has ended and are collected by the College on behalf of the University. Increases to course fees and to living expenses should be expected annually, as stated on your financial declaration paperwork. These fees were previously represented by the university fee and college fee. From October 2019 these will be represented by one fee (the course fee) for clarity. 

The course fees for each individual course can be found on the University’s Fees and Funding pages. Learn more.

Information on fee liability can also be found on the University website. Learn more.

If, after having read these pages, you are unsure about your fees or fee status please contact the University Fees Clerk at: fees.clerk@admin.ox.ac.uk


Payment of fees

A fees invoice will be sent by the College Academic Fees Office via email in early September. All students are required to pay or arrange for their funding provider to pay the annual course fees in full before the start of each academic year. Students may arrange for their studies to be funded or part-funded by grants, sponsorship, awards, loans or other funding, but they are still individually liable for their fees and living expenses and for ensuring that all of the costs of their studies are paid in full and by the due date. In the unfortunate event that the arranged funding or loan money is either unavailable, withdrawn or is insufficient to cover the costs, the student must make alternative arrangements to cover all outstanding amounts. Please note that failure to pay course fees will result in the University suspending the student for non-payment of fees. The suspension will last until the fees have been paid. 

Payment of all fees should be made to ‘Wolfson College, Oxford’. Please be aware that bank transactions can take up to two weeks to clear the banking system, so you must make your payment early enough to allow sufficient time for your payment to reach the College bank account and to be identified in time to meet the payment deadline. 

If a student starts in Hilary or Trinity term, then the first year’s fees will be due before the start of term that enrolment commences. In subsequent years fees will be due before the start of the normal academic year.

For queries about how to pay your fees, contact the College Academic Fees Office at: academic.fees@wolfson.ox.ac.uk


University and college continuation charges

If you continue to be registered for your programme of study beyond the period of fee liability, a continuation charge will be levied by the University and by the College. The same rate will apply to all students, regardless of Home/EU or Overseas fee status and whether a student is living in Oxford or elsewhere. This charge allows you continued access to the facilities and services of the College and University, subject to further charges where relevant, and to receive the appropriate student subsidies and administrative support. Both charges will continue to be charged as long as you hold student status within the University and the College until thesis submission. 

College continuation charge for 2018-19: £351 for the academic year. Students will be invoiced for the full amount before the start of the academic year, and payment will also be due in full before the start of the academic year. 

University continuation charge: Details on the rates and how to pay are available on the University website. Learn more.

Wolfson offers a variety of bursaries, travel awards and hardship grants to support our current students. Learn more.

All members of the College and Common Room are assigned an account number upon joining the College known as ‘battels’. All expenditure incurred at Wolfson College by members is charged on battels, including College and University fees in the case of students. Learn more.
