Undergraduate Study

Please note: This site currently contains information for those who applied for 2016 entry. Information for 2017 entry will be available in March.


Financing your studies

Whichever university you apply to, you need to consider the cost of your tuition and your living (or ‘maintenance’) costs. These amounts can seem daunting but there's lots of support available to help you finance your studies.

The details in this section are for UK/EU students. If you're from outside the EU, including Islands students (from the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man), you should check International fees and costs for details.

Tuition Fees

As at most English universities, in 2016-17 the tuition fees for UK/EU students studying for an undergraduate degree at Cambridge are £9,000 per year for all courses. Find out more
