|Autumn Term (Michaelmas)||Spring Term (Hilary)||Summer Term (Trinity)|
This fee covers the social activities and visits program plus membership of the Oxford Union.
Additional laboratory sessions are held in the Practical Sciences. A separate fee is charged for these sessions, as below. For practical subjects such as Art and Photography an additional termly fee of £250 is charged. The fee includes the use of specialist facilities and all consumables and equipment.
* Practical lessons do not normally take place in Trinity term. However, special arrangement can be made if practical lessons are required.
In other subjects involving project work or research methods, an additional session each week or fortnight may be necessary, charged at the individual or group hourly rate. Additional individual tutorials are charged at £70 per hour.
Students wishing to develop Basic Computing Skills leading to a CLAIT qualification receive a series of tutorials, as required. These are charged at the additional tutorial rate of £70 per hour.
No Value Added Tax (VAT) is payable on any of the above fees.
Term dates are as stated on the Term Dates page. However, the flexibility of our courses enables students to enrol at any time, especially for courses of individual tuition.
In addition to all teaching and supervised study, tuition fees cover regular academic supervision meetings, the administration and marking of progress tests and assessments, as required, advice about college applications (either in the USA or UK), student materials (except books), use of computers, including internet and email access, and the use of the photocopier. Regular weekend visits to places of interest and all activities and sports within Oxford, including membership of The Oxford Union, the prestigious student debating club, are covered by the college fee.
Host family or hostel accommodation is arranged by the college. Private rental accommodation is arranged by students. Costs are in the region of £180 to £225 per week with a host family where breakfast and evening meal is provided and a little less where students cater for themselves in the family home. Rooms at our hostels are between £5,500 and £7,000 per academic year and whilst priority is given to those studying for the three terms there are occasions when we can accommodate students in the hostel for one or two terms. Where the college assists a student in arranging accommodation, an arrangement fee of £150 is charged and an accommodation management fee of £150 is payable termly. A damage deposit of £200 is also charged (£700 for the student hostel), which is refundable once the student has left the accommodation, subject to any deductions.
Allowance should be made for living expenses and pocket money during a student's stay in Oxford. Where accommodation includes breakfast and evening meal, a weekly allowance of around £120 is sufficient plus a termly amount of about £120 per subject for books and stationery. If a student is responsible for his or her own catering, an additional £80 per week will cover this adequately.
Where this is preferred, the college opens a trust account which handles a student's accommodation payments and living expenses. The agreed amounts for each term must be deposited in the student trust account at the beginning of term. The balance of any trust fund held at the end of the course will be refunded, providing that the tuition account has been paid in full and that there are no outstanding debts with the college.
TRAVEL TO OXFORD
Students normally make their own way to Oxford from their point of entry to the UK. However, if requested, we can assist in arranging a taxi service from the London airports. The cost of a taxi from Heathrow is approximately £100, and from Gatwick approximately £150, payable directly to the driver. If a chaperone is required from the airport, we can normally organise this, at an additional cost of £100.
The college has organised fees protection to cover the full cost of tuition fees in the case of withdrawal from a course through illness. This is arranged by Marsh Limited, one of Britain's leading educational insurers. This is automatically added to accounts. It may be deleted if fees protection is not required.
