The key website to read about finance and fee status is (The UK Council for International Student Affairs)

See in particular Who Pays 'Home' fees for Higher Education in England?
As explained at the beginning of the pdf, it is a ‘living’ document and readers should expect to see it develop over time. Please always use only the most recent version.

Then, in the finance section, you'll find information about the costs and financial support available. Please also see the relevant country page if there is one for your country. Note in particular that if you have overseas fee status and are selected for an offer here at Ϻ College, you can apply for a Ϻ International Award and possible waiver of the College fee, and that these can be awarded in addition to the university-wide Cambridge, Commonwealth and International Trusts Awards.

Essential test registration deadlines

You may be aware that some courses have a compulsory admissions test (you can check by reading the subject page). Of these

  • some tests require registration in September (and you'll sit these at a test centre in your country)
  • some test are "College registered", which means you only sit them if you are invited for interview, and the College will automatically organise it for you if you're invited for interview (you sit these tests remotely)

Please read the applying section on the relevant subject page to check the exact dates for your course.

Applying for a visa

EU students will normally need a student visa to study in the UK. We help our offer holders with the process for this, providing information in our offer holders section, and collecting the documents needed for the University to issue your CAS in the final months before you start and once you have met all of the conditions of your offer. Offer holders have access to the university's Visa Advice Service and there is normally webinar in June to explain the process and answer any questions that student shave about getting a visa.

If you will be studying Medcine, note the following additional information from the : After graduation, when you start the Foundation programme (see ) you should switch from your student visa to a Tier 2 Visa which allows three years from the point of arrival. The immigration health surcharge is being scrapped for healthcare workers and so you would be covered during Foundation.
