2. Finance for graduates

All new graduate students will need to ensure that fees and other charges are paid (or a direct debit has been set up) on or before arrival. Please use the Graduate Freshers’ Finance Form below to tell the Finance Office which payments you wish to be included on your invoice, which will be sent to you in mid-September. A copy of your submission will be sent to the email address you provide.

You can make a payment right away or wait for an invoice to be emailed to you. For more information about how to make a payment please visit the Making Payments to College page. International students may also wish to read the guide on opening a UK bank account found on this page. Please note that students will not be able to access their Certificate of Enrolment until they have arrived in Oxford, and are fully enrolled on the course.

Please refer to the FAQ section at the bottom of this page and direct any queries to or 01865 274915.
