Your Estimated Annual Commitment:

Component Cost
University Composition Fee £13,554
Maintenance £17,073
Additional Costs £500
Total Annual Commitment £31,127

Dissertation Residential

The up to £500 additional cost relates to a compulsory Dissertation Residential which will consist of an intense few days of individual and group learning, focused on developing and sharing ideas concerning students’ proposed dissertation topics.

Dissertation fieldwork away from Cambridge is optional, but where a student selects a dissertation topic that might require such fieldwork for periods of time or else lab work, and thus incur additional expense, these costs will have to be met externally.  This might be through applying for College bursaries, for a Departmental lab or fieldwork grant, University Travel Grants, Charitable Trusts or through private sources and/or fund-raising.
