Financial support for undergraduate applicants

The University of Cambridge provides comprehensive information about student finance on its website, including details of tuition fees, typical living costs and sources of financial support available to help towards the costs of studying at Cambridge.

Both the College and the University are able to offer a range of financial assistance to undergraduate students.  This includes:

  • Cambridge Bursaries, typically worth up to £3500 per year, which are open to all UK undergraduate students and are awarded on the basis of household income. These bursaries are non-repayable and there are additional non-repayable bursaries for students who have been eligible for free school meals and for those classed as independent by their regional funding body.
  • Awards from The Cambridge Trust, which provides financial support for international students on degree courses at Cambridge.
  • Financial support from Queens' College, to help students meet expenses related to academic, sporting and cultural activities, including travel.
