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).



For the academic year 2020-21, 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 (Home/EU or Overseas). 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 fees 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.

Living costs (2020/21 rates)

Accommodation charges for graduate living in College range from £112 to £157.50 per week, (figures as of 2019-20) 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).
