Funding for postgraduate applicants
The cost of studying as a postgraduate at the University of Cambridge is broken down into the University Composition Fee and maintenance. In the finance section of the postgraduate admissions website, applicants should calculate their minimum annual financial commitment.
The Financial Undertaking
All postgraduate students admitted via the Student Registry are required to sign a Financial Undertaking Form before admission is confirmed. A completed and signed Financial Undertaking confirms that you have the necessary funds available to support your studies throughout the whole of your course.
It is University and College policy that all postgraduate students pay their tuition fees for the academic year in full in October. Students receive their invoices upon arrival. Instalment plans are only ever arranged for students whose scholarships require this arrangement.
Sponsor agreements must be sent to the Student Accounts office before or at arrival.
