Fees and Funding
2023-24 Fees: MSc Global Health Science and epidemiology
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. You may have seen separate figures in the past for tuition fees and college fees. The University has now combined these into a single figure.
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 graduate study. Over 900 fully-funded scholarships are available for new master's and doctoral students in 2022 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.
New opportunity for UK students: fully-funded studentship for the MSc Global Health Science and Epidemiology (2023-24)
Oxford Population Health is committed to increasing its scholarship portfolio to help it attract the best students, irrespective of background or ability to pay. UK students from underprivileged backgrounds are underrepresented on our course so we are taking action to ensure more opportunities for talented students to pursue a postgraduate degree in Population Health.

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. One studentship will be available in 2023-24.
The 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 £17,668). Awards will be made for the full duration of this one year course.
