Undergraduate Study


At the University of Cambridge, we welcome applications from all backgrounds. Refugees, asylum seekers or anyone from a forced migration background may have specific concerns when considering or starting university, and it’s important to us that they feel supported during this time.

The University of Cambridge is a welcoming and international community, and the city of Cambridge itself has been awarded ‘City of Sanctuary’ status.

We recognise that you may have experienced barriers and difficulties that can have a significant impact on educational opportunities and outcomes.

If you are unsure on your fee status, you can find advice from the UK Council for International Student Affairs. You may also wish to visit the Displaced Student Opportunities UK website, which may offer suggestions for students who cannot access Student Finance because of their fee status.

You may also be interested to visit the University’s Refugee Hub, run by the Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement.
