Fees and Applications

Coronavirus COVID-19 information:
Owing to the global health crisis we have unfortunately postponed this course until 13-15 July 2022.


The course fee is £3,750 for attendees from the private sector, and £2,625 for attendees from the public sector and civil society. For both of these sectors the course fee includes all teaching costs, en-suite accommodation at an Oxford college for three nights, breakfast, lunch and a dinner. It does not include the cost of travel to and from Oxford, visas, or any personal expenses you may incur.


We have a small number of scholarships to support participation on the course. These are only for applicants from the public sector and civil society, with a particular preference for candidates from developing countries.

Scholarships will cover a varying proportion of the course fees depending on need, and are intended to increase diversity and accessibility.

To be considered for a scholarship please provide a letter of endorsement from an appropriate senior manager (ideally the CEO or Chair of your organisation) alongside your completed application form and CV.


In order to apply please complete an application form [Microsoft Word] and return it to cfrc@smithschool.ox.ac.uk along with a copy of your CV.

Applicants will be expected to demonstrate their suitability for the course in terms of:

  • The relevance of the course to their occupation and organisation
  • Their experience and potential, particularly in areas related to course content

Applications will be reviewed and places awarded on an ongoing basis.
