Living and studying in Cambridge is not cheap and it is important that you consider all of the fees and costs that you will need to cover, including living costs as well as tuition fees.
The tuition fees for validated courses are set by the relevant awarding body (Anglia Ruskin University or the University of Cambridge) and are set out on the fees page of the Cambridge Theological Federation website.
Your tuition fee contributes towards the costs of us providing you with:
- Teaching staff
- Teaching facilities (rooms etc.)
- Academic support from a Director of Studies
- Course administration
- Access to CTF and University libraries
- Access to online resources
- Access to the Federation’s worship and social activities
Whilst the tuition fee contributes the costs listed above, our College Charge contributes towards the costs of running the College, including its staffing and maintenance. Amongst other things, this includes the cost of providing you with individual pastoral tutoring, programme advising, Internet access, weekly community meals in term time and costs associated with pastoral placements.
The College Charge for 2020/21 is £3,800 pa and is payable by all resident students, including those on sabbatical and short-stay study, except for UK and EU students studying for their first undergraduate degree. It is pro-rated for part-time research students. Those for whom the College provides no additional support beyond those covered by the tuition fee (eg distance learners) do not have to pay the College Charge.
In addition to the Tuition and College set fees, you will need to consider your living costs including:
- Accommodation (see below for Wesley House accommodation costs);
- Books and study materials; and
- Personal expenses and transport
You will also need to cover the cost of any Visa you need as well as the cost of travelling to and from Cambridge.
Support for costs
You may be able to find support for some, or all, of your costs. Please see our Scholarships and Bursary page for more details.
