A step-by-step guide.
You can apply for both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees directly through your agent portal, which is free to use and helps you keep track of your applications.
If you have any queries about using the agent portal, please contact your regional Global Recruitment Officer. If you need a student application to be tagged to you, please send your request to your regional Recruitment Officer, quoting the application ID.
Applications can also be made through UCAS for undergraduate courses starting in September.
Please remember to upload any supporting documents directly to the application.
These documents are the ones we must see to be able to make a quick decision on your application. Including these will ensure a faster decision and avoid missed emails!
If you have these documents when you apply please include them, but if not, you can send these to us later to meet the offer conditions:
A personal statement should outline why your student wants to study their chosen course in the UK and how it might help their future plans. It should be written in their own words. Here are some resources to help your students make an impact in their personal statement.
If you would like more guidance, please do ask your Global Recruitment contact for help - we are happy to run workshops for your students on how to write a personal statement.
For visa purposes, certified English translations are required for all academic documents. Please include these at the point of application.
Find out more below about tuition fees, deposit requirements and scholarships available to international students.
You can also visit our fees and funding pages for more information.
Tuition fees for international students are set annually and individual course costs vary. You can find the most up-to-date fee information for each course on our course pages.
Please note that tuition fees may increase in subsequent years both for new and continuing students.
All international students will need to pay a deposit of between £3,000 and £8,000 to secure their place at Oxford Brookes.
The quickest way to pay the deposit is by card. In order to do this you will need to log in to your Agent Portal, select the student whose deposit you wish to pay and follow the instructions. If you are unable to pay by card, you will need to pay the deposit by bank transfer using our international payments platform: Convera GlobalPay for Students
Please note: if you have applied through UCAS for your students, the deposit payment can be made by card through our online payment system. If you are unable to pay by card, you will need to pay the deposit by bank transfer using our international payments platform: Convera GlobalPay for Students

We also offer a range of scholarships to help our international students with the costs of studying at Oxford Brookes. You can find out more on our Global Scholarships page.
We guarantee that all full-time first-year international students will be offered accommodation as long as they apply by the deadline and meet the academic criteria for their offer.
Find out more about how to apply for accommodation below.
Accommodation is only allocated periodically, not on a first-come, first-served basis.
Only unconditional offer holders will be allocated accommodation
You will receive an email from us when you have been allocated a room. You can accept or decline the offer on the accommodation portal.
Once you have been assigned a room in a Hall of Residence, you will be required to sign a formal contract digitally. As soon as you sign your contract, you are entering into a legally binding financial agreement, so you should be aware of these terms and agree to them before signing. Find out more about these terms.
A Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies, known as a CAS, is needed to apply for a student visa. A CAS can only be issued after an applicant’s offer is unconditional and no more than 3 months before the start date of their course.
Find out more about the CAS process below.
