Study at Cambridge

  • Please note the following text from the University website, as at 1 July 2020: 

The United Kingdom left the European Union on 31 January 2020.

The Universities Minister for England announced on 28 May 2019 that students from the European Union starting courses in England in the 2020-21 academic year will continue to be eligible for home fee status. Further information on tuition fees for home fee status undergraduates starting their undergraduate degree in 2020 can be found on our finance pages.

The Universities Minister for England announced on 23 June 2020 that EU nationals (except Irish nationals living in the UK or Ireland), other EEA and Swiss nationals will no longer be eligible for home fee status for courses starting in the academic year 2021-22. Please see the international pages for further information on fees and costs for international undergraduates studying at Cambridge.

Our international students contribute to making Cambridge a vibrant and diverse place in which to study and we continue to extend a welcome to those students. EU students should regularly check for updates here.

One of the first questions that students – and parents – ask when thinking about applying to the University of Cambridge is “how much will it cost and will I be able to afford it?”. Since Brexit it has become much more expensive for students from the EU to study in all UK universities. To help you we have prepared a paper which sets out the current situation as at October 2023 concerning tuition fees, living expenses, and sources of finance available to students from Luxembourg.
