Fees and Funding


The cost of study at Oxford falls into two categories, the annual course fee and living expenses. Visit the University of Oxford Fees and Funding web pages for up-to-date information on the cost of study at Oxford.

It is also important to consider other costs you might incur as part of your application, for example to obtain a visa or cover language tests. Information about visa and immigration requirements for international students can be found on the University of Oxford Visa & immigration site. For English language requirements please refer to the individual course's web page. 

Funding Opportunities

The University offers a variety of scholarship programmes based on academic excellence, to give the brightest applicants from around the world the opportunity to pursue graduate study. Over 900 fully-funded scholarships are available for new master's and doctoral students in 2019 from the University, our colleges and supporters.

Most fully funded opportunities at Oxford are only available to students about to start a new course. Once you are registered as a student, there are very few substantive scholarships available, so it is vital to explore your options early.

University Scholarships

All complete applications received by 12 noon (UK time) on Friday 11 January 2019 will automatically be considered for all relevant competitive University and funding opportunities, including the Clarendon Fund, Medical Research Council funding, and various College funds. Please refer to the Graduate Admissions and Funding and Costs webpage for this course for further details relating to funded scholarships and divisional funding opportunities.  

Funded studentships are highly competitive and are awarded to the highest ranked applicant(s) based on the advertised entry requirements for each programme of study.

Departmental DPhil studentships

Full and partial awards are available to support successful applicants on our DPhil courses. The Department of Oncology is recruiting DPhil students across our spectrum of interests.

The Oxford-Radcliffe Graduate Scholarship is jointly funded by the Department of Oncology and University College supported by a historic £10m gift from a group of the College’s Old Members, the largest single gift received by the college in modern times. The benefactors are motivated to ensure that most talented graduate students will have an opportunity to work with both University College’s and Oxford’s leading academics to pursue their ambitions, contribute ground-breaking research and realise their full potential.

Departmental MSc studentships:

Up to two full and partial awards are available to support successful applicants on the MSc Radiation Biology and include payment of course fees (home/EU rate) and a stipend of not less than £14,000 for one year. All MSc applicants are automatically considered for this funding.

Clinical Research Training Fellowships:

Opportunities for Clinical Research Training Fellowships (CRTF) are advertised on the Department of Oncology Careers webpage and the University of Oxford job vacancy webpage. In line with the normal duration of CRTFs the clinical DPhil projects are usually structured for completion in three years.

Many CTRFs are funded from a range of sources including the CRUK Oxford Centre and the CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology.
