Fees, Funding and Colleges



You will need to pay University and College Fees. Information on Fees for the DPhil in Biochemistry and MSc by Research in Biochemistry can be found at these links.


All applicants that apply by the early January deadline will automatically be considered for full funding from a variety of sources including the Clarendon Fund, MRC and Colleges. This will cover University and College Fees and funding for living expenses.

Further funding opportunities can be identified on the University's Fees and Funding site.

There are a number of external sources of funding and studentships that must be applied for separately.


You must specify a college on your application form, or indicate that you have no college preference.

Colleges take interest in the academic progress of their students and provide academic support through advisors, seminar programmes, teaching career development opportunities and scholarships. They play an important role in student pastoral care, welfare, and provide an additional academic community for students to develop friendships and enjoy broader intellectual and leisure activities. Colleges may provide accommodation, usually for at least part of the duration of the study, free sports facilities, clubs/societies, and meals at low cost.

Your application will be considered by your first choice college after you receive an offer of a place on a research programme. If your first choice college cannot offer you a place, the University will ensure that you receive an offer from another college. You are not required to make a separate application to a college. The following colleges will consider candidates accepted to read for a research degree in Biochemistry.
