Fees and funding
Please note that the fees information below is for those applying for the 2013 programme through Oxford University Department for Continuing Education (OUDCE) (i.e. all those from outside North America). Fees information for North American applicants is listed in US dollars on the website of George Washington University Law School with whom the programme is jointly run. North American applicants must apply and pay their fees through George Washington University.
Programme fee: £6900.00
Fee includes tuition, written materials, library fees and full-board accommodation in New College. Travel is not included.
Private bathroom supplement: £210.00
Please note that many of the bedrooms have private bathrooms but such a room can only be guaranteed if the private bathroom supplement is paid.
Applicants are required to pay a non-refundable application fee of £25.00. Please note that this fee is part of the overall programme fee, and participants will be invoiced for the remaining amount once they accept any offer of a place.
Applicants who are offered and accept a place on the programme are required to pay the full fee by 1 May 2013. Please note that places cannot be held for applicants whose fees are not paid in full by this deadline, and under no circumstances will students be admitted to the programme unless fees have been paid in full.
All enrolments are subject to OUDCE's Terms and Conditions for Course Registration and Fee Payment. If you wish to cancel you must inform the Programme Administrator by email at email@example.com.
OUDCE reserves the right to alter details of any course should illness or any other emergency prevent a tutor from teaching, and to cancel a seminar if exceptionally low enrolment would make it educationally unviable. If it becomes necessary to cancel a seminar, participants enrolled on that seminar will be notified immediately and will receive a full refund if we are not able to offer them their second choice of seminar option. In the unlikely event that the entire programme needed to be cancelled, all participants will receive a full refund.
Applicants are very strongly recommended to take out vacation cancellation insurance, and should consult their travel agent and/or insurer for information and advice. Please note that OUDCE does not provide any insurance cover.
Santander are providing three partial Scholarships of £5000* for participants attending the 2013 Summer School in International Human Rights Law. In order to be eligible for the awards, students must be ordinarily resident in one of Santander's 'Network Countries' (see list below) and be able to demonstrate an intention to return home after the programme. Applicants will be selected on the basis of their academic record and evidence of commitment to the furtherance of human rights.
Applicants who are ordinarily resident in one of the Santander Network countries will automatically be considered for an award. It is not necessary to submit any additional documents specifically for the Scholarships and there is no separate Scholarship application form. However, applicants may wish to address the selection criteria in their personal statement.
US applicants, who must apply to the programme through George Washington University, will also be considered for the awards and should submit their application according to the instructions on George Washington University Law School website.
* Please note that the course fees for the programme are £6900 and students will need to self-fund the rest of the programme fee, travel to the programme, insurance and any other assocated costs.
