Outcome of your application
We will contact you as soon as possible by email to let you know the outcome of your application.
If your admission is formally approved, you will receive an offer letter from the Faculty of Classics, confirming your Academic Advisor and specifying the terms for which you have been admitted. In some cases you may be required to meet one or more academic conditions before your place as a Recognised Student is confirmed (for example, you may be asked to submit a certificate of English language proficiency). You will also be asked to complete a Criminal Records Declaration.
Once you have satisfied any offer conditions, we will send you a University Card form, which should be completed and returned by email to email@example.com before you arrive at Oxford.
Visas and immigration
If you are a non-UK/Irish national, you may need to apply for a visa to study in the UK before travelling.
For visits lasting three terms, you will normally need to apply for a Student Visa. For more information please see https://www.ox.ac.uk/students/visa/before/studentvisa. For visits lasting only one or two terms (i.e. less than six months), you have the choice of whether to apply for a Student Visa or to enter the UK via the Visitor route. For guidance on which is the best option for you, please see https://www.ox.ac.uk/students/visa/before/visitors. If you have any queries about the visa process, please contact the Student Information and Advisory Service’s immigration advisors for advice: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payment of fees
Your tuition fees may be paid in termly instalments, or if you are coming to Oxford for two or three terms, you may pay the full amount upfront. The tuition fee for each term must be paid no more than 14 days after the start of full term. We will send you instructions on how to pay the fee via the University’s online store. Please let us know in good time if you would like to arrange for you fee to be paid by a sponsor rather than yourself.
Students who are attending Oxford as part of a formal exchange agreement between the Classics Faculty at Oxford and their home university are not usually required to pay tuition fees.
Once we have received your signed University card form, a University card will be produced for you. You will need this card in order to gain swipecard access to the Ioannou Centre and access to libraries and other University facilities. Your University card will be available for collection from the Classics Faculty when you arrive in Oxford.
Before the start of term, you will receive an email with instructions on how to complete online registration. You should also arrange an appointment with us to collect your University card and complete the final steps in the enrolment process. If you are a non-UK/Irish national, please bring your passport with you, as the University is required to keep a scan of your passport/visa on record for the duration of your visit.
IT access and Oxford email
On arrival in Oxford, you will receive a letter providing information about IT access together with usernames and passwords. If you have any problems with activating your IT access and Oxford email on arrival, please email email@example.com.
If you are starting in Michaelmas (Autumn) Term, you are very welcome to attend the induction sessions held by the Classics Faculty for new graduate students, which take place on the Monday and Tuesday preceding the start of full term. If you are starting in Hilary (Spring) or Trinity (Summer) Terms, no induction sessions are available, but you would be welcome to contact the Faculty’s Academic Administration Team (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any general enquiries.
