New College offers a very limited number of bursaries on the basis of financial need, to British Commonwealth students only, of up to a total value of £1000 in any one year. Such bursaries could in a given year be two at £500 each, or one at £1000 (exceptionally an award of £1000 might be repeated in the second year of the part-time registration, meaning that the College fee will have been pretty well waived by the College). If you wish to seek such financial aid, please send details when applying for a student place at New College.

Why study at New College?

Since the inception of the Summer School in International Human rights Law in 1995 and then the degree programme in 2001, all the students who have studied international human rights law in Oxford have resided and taken their meals in New College. Becoming a member of the New College Middle Common Room offers you the unique opportunity to be a member of the College where you actually live and have much of your Oxford experience. Additionally, only Human Rights students who are members of the College have access to various College facilities, including the College Library, Middle Common Room, Sports facilities, etc. New College has extensive experience in providing for the needs of the Human Rights students during their periods of residence in Oxford. Accommodation, with internet access, is available for Summer School students.

College Advisors

Each student will have a College Advisor who will be available during the Summer School period.
