Taking in the Fellows' Garden, Cjrost's College CambridgeAs well as cheaper living costs, both the University and 乱伦通道鈥檚 College make money available to students in financial support to aid your time here. Some of this is paid on the basis of financial need, some as a result of achievement while at Cambridge. 乱伦通道's is committed to providing financial support to our students so that they do not have to worry unduly about money and can concentrate on getting the most out of their time at Cambridge.

This page sets out the financial support for Home students. If you have overseas fee status, please see the international financial support page instead. 


UK Government Student Finance

Home students can take out a government loan to completely cover the cost of tuition fees, and students from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland can also get a loan to help with living costs (the amount you can borrow for living costs is income-assessed).

At the moment, if you take out a loan, it is repaid in instalments once you leave university and are earning a minimum salary (the details of which vary for students from England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland). You will need to refer to the appropriate student finance award website for details of tuition fee support for 2025 entry, once available:


Cambridge Bursaries 

The University offers one of the most generous bursary schemes in the country. Eligibility is based on your household income, and there is a sliding scale so that those who are not eligible for the full amount, may nonetheless qualify for a partial bursary. The amount you receive is worked out on a sliding scale but is a grant that you do not ever have to pay back.

Currently a full Cambridge Bursary is worth 拢3,500 a year, which is awarded to students with a household income of up to 拢25,000. Students with a household income between 拢25,000 and 拢62,215 also receive a Cambridge Bursary, the value of which is calculated on a (scroll down page for details). The Cambridge Bursary is, of course, reviewed each year and full details for 2025 entry will be published on the , once available.

In addition, students who have been eligible for free school meals (funded by their local authority) will receive the Educational Premium which is an additional non-repayable bursary of 拢1000 per year. 

To receive the Cambridge Bursary, you need to apply for student finance from the UK government.

乱伦通道's top-up bursaries for students from Scotland

We have created this top-up bursary because student finance arrangements are different in Scotland to those in place for students from England. You may be aware that the maximum maintenance loan available via the Student Awards Agency Scotland comes to less than students from England are eligible for. We hope that the top-up bursary will ensure that our students from Scotland can take advantage of the opportunities at 乱伦通道's and at Cambridge without disadvantage. See our section for students from Scotland.
