As at most English universities, in 2013-14 the tuition fees for UK/EU students studying for an undergraduate degree at Cambridge are £9,000 per year for all courses.
We're committed to providing a world class education and access to the very best teachers, resources and support. Therefore, we actually invest, on average, almost twice this amount in each student every year. We also offer tuition fee support through the National Scholarship Programme.
No student has to pay their tuition fees up front or while they’re studying. Instead, you can take out a government student loan for tuition fees, and defer payment until after you've left university and are earning a minimum salary (currently £21,000 per year*).
*Students from Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales should check with the relevant student finance award agency as arrangements may vary.
Unlike overseas fee status and Islands1; students, UK/EU students who are eligible for public support don't normally have to pay an additional College fee, unless they're studying for a second degree. More information about College fees is given in the international students' fees and finance section.
1For 2013 entry onwards, Islands students (from the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man) are classified as overseas students and so charged tuition fees at the overseas rate.
