Course fees


The total cost of the course is £8,000. This includes tuition over five days from world-class experts and academics, six nights accommodation, and most meals. Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday there will be no course dinners and participants are free to explore Oxford city. The course fee does not cover overseas transport, visas or other incidentals.


There are a very limited number of scholarships covering the full cost of tuition. These are only available to eligible candidates from a select number of resource-rich countries. These include: South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Brazil, Peru, Chile, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Guinea, Indonesia, Iraq, Libya, Mexico, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nigeria, Tanzania, Tunisia and Uganda.

In addition, the Blavatnik School will offer a limited number of partial-bursaries available on a competitive basis to applicants. Applicants must cover their own travel and incidental costs.

To be eligible for either of the aforementioned awards, a bursary application must be completed by the application deadline.

We also strongly encourage female applicants to apply, with a number of opportunities currently available to help support current and rising female leaders in the natural resource sector.
