This page sets out the fees payable by students at St Catharine’s. Please note that in addition to these fees, you will also have to pay maintenance costs: accommodation and other living costs. Also, do make sure you visit the other pages in this Undergraduate Finance section detailing the financial help provided by both the College and the University.

Please note: as the process of the UK leaving the EU continues, we will be following the University's policies regarding fees for EU students from countries other than the UK. Please click this link for further updates.

Students from the UK and EU

Tuition fees at Cambridge University for 2017/18 are £9250 per year for UK/EU students. However, most students choose not to pay these fees while they are studying, but instead take out a government student loan for fees, which they only pay back once they have graduated and are earning over a threshold income (currently £21000 per year) - see this link.


Students from the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, and outside the EU

Students from countries outside the UK and EU will be expected to finance themselves throughout their course. You should read the section on the University website for international students for full details of fees and the support that is available.

As well as living costs and university tuition fees, international students and those who are from the Channel Islands and Isle of Man must also pay College Fees. College Fees are paid to the college of which you are a member to fund the wide range of services and facilities which it offers. At St Catharine’s, these include the high quality of our teaching staff, the College’s city-centre location and student accommodation, and also a wide range of sporting and cultural opportunities.
