Financing postgraduate study

Almost 1 in 5 of all students reading for a Graduate degree hold a College Scholarship. Besides generous scholarships there are also grants for academic expenses, including giving papers at conferences and a hardship fund for unforeseen circumstances. Like all other colleges in the University, LMH is able to offer places only to graduate students who can demonstrate they have sufficient funding (more information here).



In addition to a University tuition fee (which varies depending on subject and course), all graduate students at Oxford pay a college fee, which covers academic facilities and other services, except for the PGCE students who can prove they are eligible for public support.

For the 2014/15 academic year the LMH standard graduate college fee is £2,765. MBA students are liable to pay a higher college fee rate (£3,150).


Living costs (2016/17 rates)

Accommodation charges for graduate living in College range from £104 to £137 per week, due termly. There is no additional charge for water, gas or electricity.

College meals are very popular and considered good value. The College uses a cashless payment system which allows students to top-up their credit and take as many or as few meals in Hall as they like. Graduates students also dine free at the first four formal halls each term (weekly 3-course dinners), after which they are charged at a subsidised rate.

You will also receive an annual free printing allowance of 600 sheets (over which there is a small charge). There is also a small fee for membership of the Middle Common Room (the graduate student body in the college).
