Undergraduate Study


Tuition fees

As at most English universities, in 2015-16 the tuition fees for UK/EU students studying for an undergraduate degree at Cambridge are £9,000 per year for all courses.

We're committed to providing a world class education and access to the very best teachers, resources and support. Therefore, we actually invest, on average, almost twice this amount in each student every year.

No UK/EU student has to pay their tuition fees up front or while they’re studying. Instead, you can take out a government student loan for tuition fees, and defer payment until after you've left university and are earning a minimum salary.

Year abroad tuition fees

For UK/EU students undertaking a full year abroad in 2014/15, the tuition fee payable to the University of Cambridge during the year abroad is £1,350. If you study at another university during your year abroad, outside of the Erasmus programme, you may also be liable for tuition fees at the receiving institution.

Tuition fees for international and Islands students

Tuition fees for overseas students (outside the EU) vary depending on the course you are studying. Students from the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man are classified as overseas students and are therefore also charged tuition fees at the overseas rate. See international fees and costs for details.
