Your Estimated Annual Commitment:

Component Cost
University Composition Fee £12,159
Maintenance £13,595
Additional Costs £600
Total Annual Commitment £26,354

Residential School

The £600 additional cost relates to a compulsory Residential School, away from Cambridge, which will consist of an intense few days of individual and group learning, focused on developing and sharing ideas in a setting where the theories and processes taught during the programme can be seen and experienced in the field.

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