Undergraduate Study

 

 EU Undergraduate Students

The United Kingdom left the European Union on 31 January 2020.

The Universities Minister for England announced on 28 May 2019 that students from the European Union starting courses in England in the 2020-21 academic year will continue to be eligible for home fee status. Further information on tuition fees for home fee status undergraduates starting their undergraduate degree in 2020 can be found on our finance pages.

The Universities Minister for England announced on 23 June 2020 that EU nationals (except Irish nationals living in the UK or Ireland), other EEA and Swiss nationals will no longer be eligible for home fee status for courses starting in the academic year 2021-22. For most EU students commencing their studies in October 2021, their fee rates will be equivalent to the rates for international students.

UK Government regulations determining the fee status for the above categories of student has not yet been published, but is expected by March 2021. The University will be able to provide further guidance about fee status assessments for EU students commencing their studies in October 2021 once the government announces amended regulations. Updates will be published on the  international pages  as soon as they are available.

Our international students contribute to making Cambridge a vibrant and diverse place in which to study and we continue to extend a welcome to those students. EU students should regularly check for updates at www.eu.admin.cam.ac.uk.​

Going to university is an investment in your future. 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 Home fee status students. Overseas students should check International fees and costs for information. 

If you’re unsure whether you’re classed as Home or international/overseas for fee purposes, you can find more information on our Tuition Fee Status.
