So I am an international student. Oxford and Cambridge have been my dream university, so I definitely want to apply there. However, I was looking at tuition costs, and they seem a bit discouraging. I want to study physics. Oxbridge usually charges 32000+ pounds on tuition alone.

1)Are there any scholarships available that can help lower the cost?
2) Is it really worth it to go(if i get in) considering the steep price for internationals?

I know that this is a little different from the other questions on this sub. I just wanted to know if going to Oxbridge(again, if I get in) is really worth the huge pricetag.

There are some scholarships available (Ox: https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/unde...support?wssl=1, Cam: https://www.undergraduate.study.cam....ancial-support, they can be country-of-origin-dependent though and you can't be sure you'll get one) You can only apply to one of Oxford or Cambridge, btw!

Fees for international students are ridiculous everywhere in the UK, so the question might be more "is it worth it to study in the UK" more than Oxbridge specifically, and that will really depend on your personal circumstances (if you're a millionaire, it might not matter so much!); what are your other options, for example?

Good luck

Thanks for the answer. Oxbridge is definitely more expensive, especially considering other uni's only clock in around 25000 pounds. I wish UK colleges had a financial aid system like in the US
