Undergraduate Study


EU Undergraduate Students

The UK has voted to leave the European Union. It is not currently known how long that process will take or the impact that it will have on UK policy on higher education tuition fees, loans and bursaries. However, the University of Cambridge can confirm that the fee for undergraduate EU students who are already studying at Cambridge, or who will start their studies in 2017 or 2018, will be at the applicable Home rate (which for undergraduate students may be up to the maximum level allowed under UK law for each year) and they will not be subject to the overseas fee rate at any point during the course of their study. Please note that all fees may be subject to increases, which may be annual.


The information below outlines the financial support available to first-time undergraduates at Cambridge from the EU, based on figures for 2017-18.

For full details of government support for students from the EU, see the Student Finance website.
