Students taking Certificate/Diploma courses are not eligible for these benefits when attending a University/College outside the US.

The amount received from the VA depends upon entitlement, the amount the VA pay the institution depends upon eligibility (there is a cap when attending a foreign school – see below) and is generally split across the 3 terms.

Below is a link to the VA website with information on payment rates - the VA set a maximum amount (each year) that they pay for students attending foreign schools and for 2023/2024 the cap is $27,120.05

The University of Cambridge will need to confirm your enrolment before your benefits will be released.

Our office will require the following information from yourself to enable us to process your request:

  • Certificate of Eligibility for Veteran Affairs Funding
  • Copy of letter/email of your confirmation of admission to our University 
  • The VA require that institutions agree to providing their office with access to academic and financial school records for those students taking VA benefits. In order for this to happen you will need to confirm that you agree to the VA being provided with access to your academic and financial school records should it be requested.
  • Your full SSN. Please send this to us in a password protected document and send us the password in a second email. 

Please contact Caroline Brown (Caroline.Brown@admin.cam.ac.uk) quoting 'VA Benefits' in the subject line of your e-mail if you are applying for VA benefits or have any questions.
