The 2023/2024 academic year at Cambridge University has been open to prospective students who will like to further their education. The application deadline to submit applications to University is on the 15th of October in each academic year. Application fee for Cambridge University varies depending on the programme the student will be studying and the term in which they are applying. If you are applying for admission in Lent Term 2023 or Easter Term 2023 you will need to pay an application fee of £75 before you can submit your application.

An applicant applying for admission in Michaelmas Term 2023, Lent or Easter Term 2024 will need to pay an application fee of £50 before they can submit their application unless they are applying for a Doctorate. The tuition fee for Home fee status students starting their first undergraduate degree in 2023 will be £9,250 for the year. The University Composition Fee is collected by the College, along with any living costs incurred in College (rental of College accommodation, food taken in College).

Master of Advanced Study courses, which are equivalent to a fourth undergraduate year, are treated as undergraduate courses for fee purposes, and therefore overseas students are also charged the undergraduate College fee. The tuition fee for Home fee status students starting their first undergraduate degree in 2023 will be £9,250 for the year.

The University of Cambridge is committed to providing world-class education and access to the very best teachers, resources and support.

When To Apply For Funding At Cambridge University

There are three main funding deadlines which apply to all three terms in the academic cycle: Michaelmas 2023, Lent 2024 and Easter 2024. You will need to submit your application by 23:59 GMT on the day of the relevant funding deadline.​ These deadlines relate mainly to University and UKRI funds. Departmental and College funding may have different deadlines. Make sure you check these carefully and make a note of them.

Applying For Bursaries At Cambridge University

There are three ways to apply for University funding. Some Cambridge Trust funds have quite specific eligibility requirements. It may not be obvious if you are eligible for these funds from the information given in your application. You will be able to specify any funds you feel you are ‘particularly eligible’ for in your application.

1. Apply Automatically Through The Postgraduate Applicant Portal:

By ticking ‘Yes, I wish to apply for funding in the funding section of the Applicant Portal, you will automatically be considered for:

  • Most Cambridge Trust funds*, including the Vice-Chancellor’s Awards
  • Harding Distinguished Postgraduate Scholars Programme** (HDPSP)
  • Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) (where eligible)
  • Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) (where eligible)
  • Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) (where eligible)
  • Some department and College funds

Applicants are invited to the portal to explain how their research fits with certain interdisciplinary themes (bio-threats, finance in literature, origin of life research). However, this is not mandatory and all applicants assessed as academically excellent by their department will be considered.

2. Applying Through The Applicant Portal with Some Additional Information:

You can apply for other funds through Applicant Portal which requires you to complete extra fields within the form or upload an extra application form. These funds are:

  • Gates Cambridge Trust
  • Medical Research Council (MRC)
  • Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)
  • Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)
  • Some department and College funds

3. Through A Separate Form

There are other University funds that may need an extra application form as they are administered separately. The Postgraduate Funding Search lists many of these funds but we also encourage you to check the following websites:

  • Cambridge Trust: some of the Trust’s partners need you to submit a separate application form. You will still need to tick ‘Yes – I wish to apply for funding’ in the Application Portal too. The deadline for the separate application may be different to the course funding deadline.
