University of Cambridge Fees
Tuition fees for Home students
Tuition fees for students qualifying for Home fee status1 are regulated and capped by the government. Cambridge’s current policy is to charge fees at the maximum level permitted, which is anticipated to receive an annual inflationary uplift.2
We’re committed to providing a world-class education and access to the very best teachers, resources and support. Therefore, we invest significantly more than the amount of the capped fee on each student every year.
Cambridge tuition fees for Home fee status students starting their first undergraduate degree3 in 2017 will be £9,250 for all courses; all these students should expect their tuition fees to rise in subsequent years in line with inflation. Tuition fees for students starting in 2018 are likely to be higher than for those starting in 2017 and are also anticipated to rise year on year in line with inflation – we will publish 2018 entry tuition fee information on this website as soon as it is available.
Currently, Home students can take out a government loan for their tuition fees. If you do this you can defer payment of the loan until after you’ve left university and are earning a certain minimum salary, at which point you’ll start to repay the loan in instalments. Please see the information on government financial support and refer to the appropriate student finance award agency for full advice and details.
Year abroad tuition fees
If your course includes a year abroad, you’ll pay a different tuition fee for the year that you’re abroad. For Home students undertaking a full year abroad in 2017-18, the tuition fee payable to the University of Cambridge during that year will be £1,385. Year abroad tuition fees for later years are yet to be set but are likely to increase annually in line with inflation.
