Graduate Admissions

 

EU Referendum

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 Graduate Home/EU students who are already studying at Cambridge, and those who have applied or are applying to start their studies in the academic year 2016/17, will continue to be charged the Home/EU fee rate applicable at the time of their application, provided this continues to be permitted by UK law.

University Composition Fee (UCF)

This is the fee levied for the teaching, supervision, student support and facilities you will receive and have access to from the University and your College. The value of the UCF is dependent on your fee status.

You are liable to pay the UCF for the following minimum number of research terms:

Qualification Terms, full-time Terms, part-time
PhD, CPGS 9 (3 years) 15 (5 years)
MLitt, MSc 6 (2 years) 10 (3⅓ years)
MPhil 3 (1 year) 6 (2 years)

Payment of Fees

The University Composition Fee is collected by the College, along with any living costs incurred in college (rental of college accommodation, food taken in college).

Master of Advanced Study courses, which are equivalent of a fourth undergraduate year, are treated as undergraduate courses for fee purposes, and therefore overseas students are also charged the undergraduate College fee not included in the fee table below.

The College will make clear to you how these payments are to be made and by what deadlines. Some colleges collect the fees for the whole year at the beginning of the course.
