As an offer holder, you are required to complete a Financial Declaration in order to meet your financial condition of admission. This aims to ensure that you are fully aware of the expected fees and living costs associated with your chosen course of study at Oxford. See more information here.
Setting up your bank account
Please read this guide to setting up your UK bank account.
It is strongly recommended that you register with the College doctors, Drs Leaver and O’Shea at the Jericho Health Centre, unless you are already registered with another doctor in the local area. You can do this online in advance of arriving in Oxford at www.campusdoctor.co.uk/oxford/.
International students are advised to obtain an NHS number - www.nhs.uk/register
International students are required to follow the national guidelines and book tests with private providers available as stipulated on the gov.uk website. This will be the most up-to-date place for you to find current advice and there is a directory of travel test providers.
The University does offer both symptomatic PCR testing and regular symptom-free testing, but this does not include testing related to travel. More information about University testing, which may come in handy once you arrive, can be found on the University website here.
We strongly encourage you to take up the offer of a Covid-19 vaccination when eligible, ideally before arriving in Oxford at the start of the autumn (Michaelmas) term. If students arrive in Oxford having had the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine elsewhere in the UK, they are encouraged to bring their vaccination card with them, or to have a record of their NHS number, and arrange to have the second dose of the vaccine in Oxford. International students are eligible to access the Covid-19 vaccine for free, regardless of their nationality or immigration status. Further information about Covid-19 vaccination for international students can be found here.
