Graduate Admissions

 

EU Referendum

The UK has voted to leave the European Union. It's not currently known how long that process will take or the impact it will have on UK policy on higher education tuition fees, loans and bursaries.

The Education Secretary confirmed on 2 July 2018 that: 'students from the European Union starting courses in England in the 2019/20 academic year will continue to be eligible for home fee status’. This announcement, along with the announcements made in October 2016 and April 2017, allows the University of Cambridge to confirm that the fee for postgraduate EU students who will start their studies in 2018 or 2019, will be at the applicable Home/EU rate for the duration of their course. Please note that all fees are liable to rise annually.

The fee status of EU nationals for 2020 entry onwards has yet to be determined by the UK government. EU students should regularly check for updates at: www.cam.ac.uk/eu

 

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.
