How much will it cost to study at Jesus College? Find out more about tuition fees and likely living costs.

Tuition fees

Students from the UK and European Union

In 2017-18 University of Cambridge tuition fees are £9,250 per year for all undergraduate courses.

You can pay the fees through a government loan which is repayable in instalments after you have graduated and are earning a minimum salary of £25,000 per year.

Overseas students

Whether you're counted as an overseas student depends on where you live and your nationality. If you've been living in the UK for reasons other than education, for three years immediately before the start of your university course, you typically won't be defined as an overseas student. Home (UK and EU) students whose families have been temporarily posted abroad usually won't be considered as overseas students either. 

Tuition fees for overseas students vary depending on the subject you're studying, please check the fee levels for 2017-18 and try to allow for increases over the next few years.

International students also have to pay an additional College fee each year, which varies slightly between Colleges. For 2017-18 our fee is £8,805.

Living costs

We offer accommodation to all undergraduates throughout their course.

Your total living costs - including rent, food, books and study materials, clothing, entertainment etc - will obviously depend on your lifestyle, but we estimate that around £8,500 a year should cover everything for a home (UK or EU) student.

If you're an overseas student your expenses may be higher, for instance if you have to stay in the UK during vacations. Again, living costs will vary by lifestyle, but we estimate that you'll need around £11,350.

The University website has a more detailed breakdown of estimated living costs.
