Student support

We have a simple but ambitious aim; that no student who is capable of gaining a place at Oxford should be deterred from coming here by worries about money.

Nearly a quarter of our UK undergraduates receive financial support from Oxford.

Student support in numbers

We allocate millions to ensure every UK undergraduate can afford to study here:

  • Around one in ten UK students benefits from the highest level of bursary support.
  • Since it was launched in 2012, the Crankstart Scholarship (formerly known as the Moritz-Heyman Scholarship) has provided financial support and on-course assistance to more than 1,000 new UK students with household incomes of £16,000 or less. 
  • Last year we made around £8 million of financial support available to undergraduates – one of the most generous packages of any UK university. The University and colleges offer hardship funds for students experiencing financial difficulties whilst on course.
