Decree (4): Fees (other than composition fees) payable by
candidates for examinations

Explanatory note

Council and the General Board have reviewed the level of various fees
payable by candidates for examinations and have agreed that they
should in general be increased by 2.5 per cent (the overall increase
recorded in the Higher Education Pay and Prices Index), normally
rounded to the nearest pound, with effect from 1 September 2000 in

Resubmission fees for the M.Litt., M.Sc., M.Th., and D.Phil., which
rose to £100 in 1996, are being held at this new level for the
foreseeable future, in order not to deter candidates from
resubmitting. The following decree provides accordingly.

Decree (5): University composition fees for
Home/EU students and certain others for 2000--1, and for overseas
students for 2001--2

Explanatory note

The Department for Education and Employment has announced that the
tuition fee introduced for award-holding Home/EU undergraduates
should be increased from £1,025 to £1,050 for the year
2000--1. The following decree effects this change and related changes
for the coming year. Notification has not as yet been received of the
arrangements which will apply in 2000--1 in respect of students from
the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man. Colleges will be informed of
the position separately once an announcement has been received.

On fees for overseas students, Council has already made a decree
setting the levels of fees for overseas students in 2000–1
(Decree (5) of 27 May 1999, Gazette, Vol. 129, p. 1299).
For a number of years the levels of fees to be charged to overseas
students have been set well in advance. Clauses 11--15 of the
following decree therefore set out the fees for 2001--2.

Opportunity is taken in clause 5 of this decree to set the fee for
Recognised and Visiting Students, which is half the Category A rate
(i.e. £3,425 in 2000--1). Clause 6 sets the fee for members of
the University working on the Foreign Service Course at the Category
B rate (i.e. £9,133 for 2000--1). Clause 7 makes provision for
the level of the university fee to be charged in 2000--1 for the
Diploma Course in European Studies (intended primarily for Japanese
managers) at the Category C rate (i.e. £16,745 in 2000--1).

Opportunity is taken also (in clause 1 of the decree) to make
provision for the suspension of a graduate student who defaults on
his or her fee payments, to correspond to the existing provision for
the suspension of an undergraduate who so defaults.

Text of Decree (5)

1 In Examination Decrees, 1999, p.
1086, after l. 15 insert:

`(c) In the event that any fee, or the relevant instalment
towards the fee, remains unpaid after the due date of payment, the

UNIVERSITY ENVIRONMENT PRIZE

Reminder

Those intending to enter for this prize are reminded that all entries are to
be received by midday on Friday, 23 June.

In 1997, the University's Environment Committee was established to
monitor environmental performance and encourage feasible improvements. In
July 1999 a set of nine targets was adopted, covering everything from
energy-efficiency, green travel and recycling, to sustainable purchasing,
environmental building/refurbishment, and waste reduction measures. The
Committee is now offering two prizes (£200 and £100) to encourage
students to raise awareness of environmental issues within their colleges
and/or departments. Prizes will be awarded to students who can demonstrate
that they have made a major contribution to improving the environment of the
University (through their college or department) by making progress towards
any one or more of the nine University targets (printed in the
Gazette on 20 January 2000—copies can be obtained from Sarah
Cowburn, University Offices).

Entries may consist of a short statement or longer description, but
should in any event be no longer than 1,000 words. The following points
should be addressed:

—Which target(s) have you concentrated on and why?

—What has been achieved? The effect of the claimed environmental benefit
should be quantified, wherever possible.

—How did you work towards this target?

—Who else was involved and what did they do?

—Could your work be replicated by other colleges/departments?

—If you were to do something like this again, would you do anything
differently?

—What difficulties did you experience in making progress towards your
chosen target(s)?

Entries, which will be judged during the Long Vacation by a panel
headed by Dr Boardman (Environmental Change Institute), should be signed
by the head of department or college to verify that the achievements are
actual, and handed in to Sarah Cowburn, University Offices (telephone:
(2)70193) by midday on Friday, 23 June.

daily. This is also a change from recent years. EFL registrations will take
place in Noughth Week, 2–6 October, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon and 2 p.m.
to 4 p.m. (Postgraduate students may register for EFL courses from 4
September.)

In addition to the regular courses the Language Centre will be offering
a programme of introductory talks, visits, and short courses in Noughth Week
and First Week of Michaelmas Term. The full programme will be published
shortly and will be sent to colleges, departments, and libraries.

The Lambda Project

The Lambda Project (the Oxford Foreign Language Maintenance and
Development Project) will be continuing in Michaelmas Term and seeks more
participants who have at least GCSE level French or German. The project aims
to assist students and staff who are unable to attend Language Centre
courses to maintain and improve their language skills through supported
independent learning. Prospective participants take a baseline test, complete
a study Plan, undergo an interview, and, if successful, are admitted to the
project and assigned a personal language adviser. Enquiries about joining the
project should be sent, in the first instance, to Aliki Pantos (e-mail:
admin@lang.ox.ac.uk).

Library and Self-Study Facilities

The Language Library and Study Area with audio, video, CD-ROM, and CALL
facilities can be used throughout opening hours. New users should aim to
arrive shortly before 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. to register and attend an orientation
session.

Further details of all courses and activities may be obtained from Angela
Pinkney at the Language Centre, 12 Woodstock Road, Oxford OX2 6HT
(telephone: Oxford (2)83360, e-mail: admin@lang.ox.ac.uk, Internet:

ASHMOLEAN LIBRARY


Further revision of opening arrangements for the
Sackler Library

The construction of the Sackler Library has fallen further behind schedule,
making it impossible to move into the new building before March 2001 or to
open it to readers until Trinity Term 2001. Readers are hereby notified that
there will therefore be no unusual disruption during the Christmas Vacation
of 2000–1, as previously advertised, but that the movement of the library
stock into the new building will largely be carried out during the Easter
Vacation of 2001, provided that there are no significant further over-runs on
the project. This is likely to involve the closure of the Main Ashmolean
Library, Griffith Institute Library, Western Art and Eastern Art libraries for
all or part of the Easter Vacation (15 March–19 April 2001). The
Department of the History of Art Library will remain open until it is moved
into the Sackler building, probably in July 2001. Further details of these
closures will be announced as they become available.

During the remaining construction period it is expected that working
conditions in the library will remain tolerable, but there may be times when
it becomes necessary for health and safety reasons to close or partially close
the library at short notice. The Committee regrets any resulting inconvenience
to readers and is taking all practicable measures to minimise disruption. For
further information, reference may be made to the Sackler Library Web site
at http://www.classics.ox.ac.uk/sackler.html.

Applications are invited for a Michael von Clemm Fellowship
for study at Harvard University during the academic year
2001–2. The fellowship is open to undergraduates at the
University of Oxford who will be entering their final year in
October 2000 and also to those who will graduate in June 2000.
It is intended to attract applicants of very high academic
calibre who have the personal qualities likely to conduce to
success in a non-academic career. The successful applicant
will spend a year at the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and
Sciences as a Special Student following a course of study or
research of his or her choice (subject to the availability of
tuition or supervision at Harvard). The fellowship is not
intended for those wishing to study vocational subjects, such
as Business Administration or Law.

The fellowship will meet the costs of all tuition at
Harvard as well as travel between Boston and the UK and will
provide an allowance sufficient to cover the costs of living
at Harvard.

Those wishing to be considered should write to the College
Secretary, Corpus Christi College, Oxford OX1 4JF, asking for
further particulars and an application form, together with a
copy of the information for referees. It is the responsibility
of applicants to ask three referees to write directly to the
same address.
