Students on the course undertake a compulsory work placement and applicants should be aware that neither the University nor the Department cover day-to-day subsistence costs incurred during the placement. Depending upon the location of the placement these costs may be higher than the subsistence costs which would be incurred while living in Cambridge for an equivalent time period (placements are typically four to six weeks). Applicants need to assess and allow for any additional expenses related to their placement.

The Department will cover the cost of travel and accommodation for the work placement, up to the value of £1,650 per head for those leaving Cambridge. For those undertaking their work placement remotely from Cambridge, the Department can reimburse up to £650 in accommodation bills. These allowances may increase in line with inflation.
