The level of fees charged depends on the course a student is taking, and for University fees only, whether the student is:
- from the British Isles and the rest of the EEA - "home and EU" students, or
- from outside the European Union - "overseas students".

Length of Fee Liability
University and college fees are fixed for each year, and are subject to variation between one year and the next. Students are liable to pay tuition fees to the University and to their college for each term of any course (whether taught or research) they undertake. These fees are due either until the course has been completed, or for a prescribed maximum number of terms. There will be fee liability whether or not they are working in Oxford for that term. Although liability is incurred on a termly basis, students may be required to pay a full year's fees in advance.
Information on the length of fee liability for the various types of course can also be found on the Fee liability section of the University website.
Information on the latest University fees for graduate students is available on the Fees and Funding page of the University website.
There are statutory residence requirements for each degree, though dispensation may be granted in certain circumstances. Statutory residence is the time kept after matriculation as a member of a College paying College and University fees and following a course leading to a degree of the University.
Full details of the residence and fee requirements for all courses are given in the University of Oxford Examination Regulations, a copy of which is given to each new member of the College on arrival in Oxford.
Graduate college Fees
The graduate college fee covers academic facilities and other services that are provided by Jesus College, but does not include accommodation or meals. Graduate students on modular courses do not pay a separate college fee.
For more information on the estimated cost of accommodation and meals refer to the University website.
The college fee for graduate students studying in 2018/19 is £3,112.
The college fee for the following courses is not charged at the standard graduate rate:
- Overseas students in Year 1 of Graduate Entry Medicine (undergraduate rate = £7,570)
- MBA (£3,150)
- EMBA (£1,556)
Please note that College fees for those PGCE and 2nd BM (clinical medicine) students, who are in principle eligible for public support, are paid by the Government.
The College levies a continuation charge (£104 per term in 2018/19) for graduates whose fee liability has ceased, but who continue as a registered student at the College (in addition to the University's continuation charge of £468 per term). Jesus College Middle Common Room subscriptions (£27.65 per term for 2018-19) are also payable by graduates who have not yet completed their studies but are no longer liable to pay fees.
Future Fee rates
An annual inflationary amount is applicable to University and College fees for a given year.
Up to and including the academic year 2018/19, separate figures have been published on the university website for university fees and college fees: the total payable is the sum of these two figures. From the academic year 2019/20, course fees for matriculated students are published as a single figure. This change is intended to ensure that the total level of fees payable is in all cases completely clear. Home/EU PGCE students can access a tuition fee loan from the UK government to cover their course fee in full.
Further information on the 2019/20 University fees for graduate students is available on the Fees and Funding page of the University website.
