Fees and funding
There are two elements that you should be aware of when calculating the cost of your studies: the course fees and living costs. Course fees cover academic services and facilities provided to support your studies. They do not cover your accommodation or other living costs.
Full details of fees can be found by visiting the University fees and funding website.
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 postgraduate study.
Please refer to the University’s dedicated funding pages for information about how to apply for Oxford scholarships requiring an additional application.
Oxford Population Health awards a small number of competitive scholarships each year to attract the best students, irrespective of background or ability to pay. This scholarship may fund the MSc fees and/or a stipend for one year. Over 60 students from 29 countries have received departmental funding since 2014/15.
To enable UK students from underrepresented backgrounds to pursue a postgraduate degree in Population Health, Oxford Population Health, in association with Green Templeton College, has set up a studentship to provide full financial support to a talented UK-resident applicant from underrepresented backgrounds each year. This studentship will cover all tuition fees at the ‘Home’ rate and provide a grant for living expenses commensurate with UK Research Council rates (at least £18,622). Awards will be made for the full duration of this one year course. The student will be a member of Green Templeton College for the duration of their course and will be eligible to apply for college accommodation.
All applications completed by 12 noon on Friday 1 December 2023 will automatically be considered for all relevant competitive University and departmental funding opportunities.
If you wish to be considered for the studentship for students from underrepresented backgrounds, you must:
- Be ordinarily resident in the UK; and
- Answer the questions about your socioeconomic and educational background (the University’s graduate admissions webpage has further information about these questions); and
- Submit a completed application by the December deadline (stated above).
MSc candidates are encouraged to apply for other independent funding sources for which they may be eligible. Those who are successful in achieving partial funding for their MSc studies may also apply for matched funding from Oxford Population Health. Please contact the Graduate Studies Office for more details.
As 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.
