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
Course fees are fixed for each year, and are subject to variation between one year and the next. Students are liable to pay course fees 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 Course 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 Course 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.
Course fees are subject to an annual inflationary increase. Details can be found on the University's website.
