Finance and studying at Oxford
We hope that nobody is put off from applying to Oxford because of money worries.
We have funds available to assist any student in genuine financial hardship.
The financial arrangements regarding tuition fees and the Oxford Opportunity Bursary are the same at New College as they are for every other undergraduate college in Oxford, and are outlined on the University website.
Oxford is no more expensive than many other universities. Aside from the Oxford Opportunity Bursaries, there are a number of other financial benefits associated with studying at Oxford, and New College in particular:
- Accommodation – New College students are entitled to a room in college accommodation in their first, second and fourth years of study. We also have the capacity to accommodate a substantial number of third-year students. Since the terms are only eight weeks and you only have to pay the rent for the days you occupy the room it may work out at less than other universities.
- Academic resources – our library contains around 100,000 books, journals and other publications, including multiple copies of the main texts you will require for your studies. Rooms are all provided with broadband internet connections, and we have a computer room with 24 terminals and two printers and a scanner for students’ use.
- Subsidised meals – the College dining hall operates on a non-profit basis, so costs to our students are kept low. The average cost of a cooked lunch is £3.50.
- Activities and entertainment – all student societies, clubs and social events are heavily subsidised by the College.
- Central location – students are never more than 10-15 minutes’ walk away from department buildings, the main shopping area, or the coach and train stations.
