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.

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 this website as soon as they are available.  Please check the international pages regularly for updates.

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 here.

 

There’s a range of financial help available to students at Cambridge, including government student loans for tuition fees and living costs, the Cambridge Bursary Scheme, and College awards. For more information, see:

Part time work

The University takes the view that our students shouldn't undertake paid employment during term-time – it's important that you have an appropriate work-life balance, and we offer a wide range of financial support to help you manage the costs of university study. However, there may be a few opportunities available within the University and Colleges that are exceptions to this, such as working in the College bar, College library or as a student helper during open days.
