Finance and Funding

It costs no more to attend the University of Oxford than it does to attend most other UK universities. At Lincoln College we subsidise food and accommodation, and have a very generous funding package to help support our undergraduate students.

We offer a large number of bursaries and hardship awards, as well as prizes for academic achievement, grants for travel, and funds to support extra-curricular activities; none of which need to be repaid and all of which are made in addition to any financial support you may get from the University of Oxford.

We want our students to get the most out of their time here, without having to worry about their finances.

To be considered for some of financial support at Oxford that looks at your household income, it is really important that you grant permission for you university to have access to this information when you apply for Student Finance (such as through Student Finance England). This will allow us to reach out to you to offer some of the financial support described below.

Lincoln automatically considers you for bursary schemes every year, available thanks to our generous alumni, and they offer book grants to all students. Their financial support really made the difference to me, and it proves that you can study at Oxford, no matter what background you come from.
