Financial help for undergraduate international students

  • If you are an international student you can benefit from a range of financial support to help with the cost of studying in the UK.
  • Starting your degree in September 2022 or January 2023? You could qualify for one of our new £2,000 international student scholarships.

    We know that moving to a new country can be a challenge, and we believe that early preparation is an important factor in student success. In order to encourage our students to be well prepared for their new life in the UK, we are offering a £2,000 scholarship to support students who make their deposit payment by a relevant deadline, see below for more information.

    Full information including criteria for eligibilty can be found here.  

    If two or more members of immediate family are studying and paying fees at Oxford Brookes at the same time, we will deduct 10% from your tuition fees for each family member.

    This discount is open to all family members (siblings and spouses) who are categorised as 'overseas' for fees purposes. For more information please contact the Student Finance team.

    If you have completed one or both of these courses

    and are renewing your visa to join an Oxford Brookes undergraduate course, the University will pay the costs of renewing your Student Visa (previously Tier 4), as follows:

    • £490, if it is renewed in the UK
    • £363, if it is renewed outside the UK

    To claim this discount you should apply by email to the Student Finance Office after receiving your visa for your new course. You must provide a copy of your passport or your new visa, which must be dated after you have finished your previous course.

    If you have applied in the UK you must show your new visa on a Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) or visa card. If you have applied outside the UK you must show the visa sticker in your passport.

    Unless a request is made no discount will be awarded. The discount will be debited against your tuition fees. If your fees have already been paid in full a refund will be arranged. Only one visa renewal discount will be awarded per course.

    The  Oxford Brookes Sanctuary Scholarship scheme provides a full fee waiver and living cost bursary to individuals seeking asylum and those who have a form of protection from an asylum claim who are not able to access government student finance.

    Other sources of funding are available from time to time. For more information, please contact your local British Council office or visit the websites of the UK Council for International Student Affairs or Study UK.
