Financial support

Information for undergraduates

It is no more expensive for a student to study at Oxford University than at most other UK universities. We are committed to ensuring that no UK student is unable to study at Oxford for financial reasons, and because of this Exeter College and the University of Oxford together fund generous up-front non-repayable bursaries for students from lower income households in the UK and EU.

Scholarship opportunities for Overseas undergraduates (i.e. those not from the UK or EU) are very limited, and unfortunately Exeter College has no funding packages of its own to offer Overseas undergraduates.  Details of some of the Scholarships available to study at Exeter College are available from the University’s Fees, Funding, and Scholarships search page.  However, we are pleased that Exeter College is one of just four Oxford Colleges at which Jardine Scholarships can be held.  These are full scholarships for applicants who are normally resident in any of the countries or territories in which Jardine Matheson Group has significant business interests, which include Cambodia, mainland China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.  Applications for these Scholarships need to be made directly to the Jardine Foundation, and details of how to apply are on the Jardine Foundation website.

The College and the University each have funds available to help our students if they experience unforeseen or exceptional financial difficulties after starting their course.  These funds are called “Hardship Funds”, and can make grants or loans to help overcome financial difficulty experienced during a student’s course of study. Exonian Bursaries (College hardship grants), most of which are generously funded by former Exeter students, are usually in the range £500–£1,000, University Hardship Grants are greatly over-subscribed, but can be held in addition to College grants.

The College is able to offer a variety of prizes and grants to support and reward its undergraduates. Scholarships and exhibitions (worth up to £200) are awarded each year to undergraduates who do distinguished work. There are also various annual prizes to reward excellence in academic work within different subject areas. We have funds to help students travel abroad, or to take up internships, or to support some students who need to stay in Oxford outside the normal term-time to complete their academic work.

If you accept an offer of a place, the college will require you to complete a Financial Declaration form.
