In order to be eligible for the Cambridge Bursary all UK students must apply for financial assistance through Student Finance England, Student Awards Agency for Scotland, Student Finance Wales or Student Finance Northern Ireland depending on where you live, and undergo a household income assessment.

There is no separate application for the Cambridge Bursary.  We use the household income figure calculated by your student finance body as the basis on which to determine the level of Cambridge Bursary you will receive.

You can begin your application for financial assistance (for courses starting in 2022) here (Student Finance England's website where links are also provided for Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish students).

EU students must apply through Student Finance England.

Please note that the income assessment is carried out by your regional Student Finance body and passed to the Student Loans Company.  Any information submitted to support the application and income assessment is held securely by the SLC. Neither the college nor the Student Registry have access to this supporting information, nor are they responsible for the income assessment.

You do not need to take up any loans that are offered but you must go through the application and assessment process in order for the Cambridge Bursary to be awarded.

The application process is slightly different depending on if you are a UK or an EU student however the eligibility criteria and award values are the same for each.

Please follow the the appropriate link on the left for further instructions on applying.
