2020-21 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.

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.
