There is a standard fee of £1,910 for each module attended, payable in advance. This fee applies whether or not the attendee is working towards a postgraduate qualification, and regardless of nationality and residency. It includes course materials, lunches during the teaching week, and the examination and assessment of the course assignment.
If a student, having booked a place on a module, cancels that place at short notice, or fails to attend, then a cancellation fee may apply (see terms and conditions).
There is a standard registration fee for MSc students, payable in four manageable instalments of £3,260, at or before the beginning of each year of study. European citizens who have been ordinarily resident in the European Economic Area for the past three years may qualify for Home/EU student status(see the University criteria for the full list), and a reduction of this fee to four instalments of £2,070.
An MSc can be undertaken in a minimum of two and a maximum of four years, all instalments will be due regardless of duration of study. Extension fees will apply at £100 per term beyond the four years.
Students working towards an MSc will be required to attend modules in at least ten different subjects, together with a project module. The cost of the project module is included in the MSc registration fee. Module, registration, and extension fees will be adjusted each year, in line with inflation, at a rate to be determined by the University.
The projected total cost of an MSc at 0% inflation is £27,380 (home/EU) or £32,140 (overseas). The actual cost of an MSc will depend upon the selection of modules and the total time taken to complete, but may be easily estimated. Any substantive change to this fee structure will apply only to subsequent registrations.
The costs stated above are for module attendance and student registration. Most students live outside Oxford, and will incur additional costs in attending modules and the formal "matriculation" ceremony for University admission. The Programme may be able to provide advice in this regard, but is unable to provide either subsidised travel or accommodation.
All payments must be completed before any postgraduate qualification will be awarded by the University.
The above rates apply for module attendance and student registration between October 2017 and September 2018. They will increase annually in line with inflation, with the precise rate being determined by the University.
