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, which students do by completing a Financial Declaration (more information on Financial Declarations can be found on the University website here).



Course fees for graduate students are published as a single figure (in previous years, there were separate figures for university fees and college fees). Course fees will vary according to your programme of study and your fee status. University and college services are included in the course fees you pay and are divided between the University (including your department and/or faculty) and the College.

Course fees are payable for each year of study (i.e. for the duration of your fee liability). Please note that course fees and living costs usually increase annually. Course fees are also payable to the College with the exception of a small number of courses that are delivered by the Saïd Business School and the Department for Continuing Education (they collect fees directly). It is important to note that course fees for the full academic year are payable annually in advance – no later than Week 1 in the term you commence your studies.

Full details of course fees can be found on the University's Fees page below.

Living costs (2021/22 rates)

Accommodation charges for graduates living in College range from £116 to £163 per week, (figures as of 2020-21) which are due termly. There is no additional charge for water, gas or electricity for on-site College accommodation.

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 three formal halls each term (weekly 3-course dinners), after which they are charged at a subsidised rate. This is regardless of whether you live on-site or off-site!

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).

See the University website for more information about living costs.
