Fees and Costs
If you are made a conditional offer of admission to Cambridge, you will need to obtain sufficient funding for the full duration of your course.
You will need sufficient funds to cover the University fee (your course costs) and your College fee, as well as funds for your 'maintenance' - that is, your accommodation, meals, books, travel, clothes and any other expenses that you incur while you study. In addition, some courses require you to have additional funds for fieldwork.
A full explanation of the fees you will be liable to pay, and estimated course costs by academic year, can be found in the 'Course Costs and Fee Status' section of our website.
Evidence of funding is required before your admission to the University can be confirmed. This is known as a financial undertaking. More information can be found under "Common Conditions of Admission".
Please note that, with the exception of a small number of 4 year doctoral programmes, PhD students are expected to submit within three years. If you over-run neither the University nor your College will be able to provide funding. You should therefore think carefully about making provision for this possibility, before you take up your place.
