Student Funding

Despite what you may have heard, it's no more expensive to study at Oxford than at any other university. In fact, our world-class resources and college provision actually keep living costs down.

College Awards & Prizes

St Catherine's College believes in investing in talent. With the help of alumni, Fellows and friends we now offer a wide range of awards and prizes.

Travel Awards

As a result of generous donations from alumni and friends of the College, the College is able to make a number of travel awards to existing undergraduates each year for travel abroad during the long vacation. The awards are primarily for enterprising and interesting travel projects rather than for study. Further details of these awards are circulated to students by email and are posted on notice boards within the College.

College Prizes

Several prizes are awarded each year to St Catherine's undergraduates. There are prizes for academic, social and cultural contributions to the College. Most are cash prizes, ranging from £40 to £200. The College also offers the Nick Young Award: a period of work experience with London Weekend Television and a cash prize of £1,000. Further details of these awards are circulated to students by email and are posted on notice boards within the College.

Repetiteur Scholarship

St Catherine's College and New Chamber Opera have established a Répétiteur Scholarship for pianists wishing to further their skills as a répétiteur, accompanist or conductor. Holders of the Scholarship will be appropriately qualified undergraduate members of St Catherine's College, reading Music or another approved subject. It is intended that the successful applicant will divide his or her scholarship time between St Catherine's College and New Chamber Opera, assisting in rehearsals, performances and with the training of singers for New Chamber Opera, and helping to organise and run practical musical activities in St Catherine's. More information is found here.

The Nick Young Award

The annual award – under the Nick Young Trust, set up in memory of Nick Young, an alumnus of the College – offers a grant of £1,250 to a member, or alumnus, of the College for the purpose of gaining experience of the functions of the television media by spending a period of several months as arranged by Director's Cut Productions.
