Support offered by the College and University
The University and its Colleges are firmly committed to the principle that access to Oxford should not depend on financial circumstances.
The University operates the Oxford Opportunity Bursaries scheme to offer grants and bursaries to UK students lower income backgrounds. Eligible students who also receive full statutory government grants should be able to meet their entire basic living costs during term-time without needing to take out a student loan for maintenance. Bursaries range from £200 to £4,100 (depending on your family’s income) and you are encouraged to visit the University’s site to learn more about the scheme.
The University also offers a limited amount of funding for overseas undergraduates. Click here to visit their site.
Queen’s has a tradition of supporting its members generously. In 2007-8 we budgeted to spend nearly £80,000 on student support; grants and loans are awarded by a student finance committee which meets twice per term to consider applications. The committee is attended by undergraduate and postgraduate welfare representatives. If you find yourself in severe financial hardship you can apply to this committee.
You can also apply to this committee for what we call ‘academic support’ grants. These are to assist you with costs associated with your study such as conference attendance, travel, books, and printing. We will typically award undergraduates a maximum of £260 per year over the course of a degree.
We also offer a book grant programme, which refunds you 50% of the cost of essential texts, subject to an upper limit of £75 per year.
In addition, there are various other funds which offer support to students in particular circumstances, including a substantial fund established by Old Members of the College to assist students in the pursuit of educational, sporting, and cultural activities arising from their life at College.
Queen’s is one of the colleges that participate in the scholarship scheme run by the Jardine Foundation, which offers full bursaries for students from mainland China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
