King's collects the same tuition fees, on behalf of the University, as other Cambridge Colleges. Students at King's may also have access to generous financial support. See the following pages:

Fee status

Whether you qualify as a home or overseas student for fee purposes is important, as this will affect the costs and the financial support available to you.

The Education Secretary confirmed on 2 July 2018 that: 'students from the European Union starting courses in England in the 2019/20 academic year will continue to be eligible for home fee status’. This announcement, along with the announcements made in October 2016 and April 2017, allows the University of Cambridge to confirm that the fee for undergraduate EU students who are already studying at Cambridge, or who will start their studies in 2018 or 2019, will be at the applicable Home rate (which for undergraduate students may be up to the maximum level allowed under UK law for each year) for the duration of their course. They will also be able to access financial support for the duration of their course. Please note that all fees are liable to rise annually.

Further information is on the Gov.UK website and see www.cam.ac.uk/eu. NB. Eligibility information is in the notes at the bottom of the Gov.UK link.

The fee status of EU nationals for 2020 entry onwards has yet to be determined by the UK government. Students from non-UK European Union countries should regularly check for updates at: www.cam.ac.uk/eu

Before you apply

King's does not confirm fee status until after offers have been made. If you would like information about fee status before you apply, we recommend that you look at the UKCISA website.

After you receive an offer

King's sends detailed information about finance with offer letters explaining the costs and financial support available, and what you need to do. Eligible students normally apply to the relevant student finance company (see links above). The company sends a confirmation document showing the support you are eligible for and you will be asked to send a copy to King's.

Students will be required to provide full documentation that shows you have sufficient funds for the duration of your course, when requested.

Please read the information about costs and financial support.
