Financial Support

Because we realise that money is often central to students’ worries, we have a dedicated Financial Tutor (for undergraduates) who can offer advice on all kinds of bursaries and grants. Graduate students should contact their Tutor, who can advise on the support available. Studying at Cambridge is no more expensive than studying at other top universities in England, and we have one of the best bursary systems in the country. Our students can get support from both University and Newnham sources, ranging from book and travel grants, scholarships and prizes to hardship funds. We have never yet had a home student withdraw from Newnham because of money problems, and we are committed to keeping things that way.

Much of our funding for access work and student support and bursaries comes from past Newnhamites, who often choose to contribute to student support. As a result, we have very generous provision, including rent subsidies, college bursaries and other support. Hardship funds are also available where circumstances change unexpectedly, and are used until regular support can be put in place. Details of financial support is available for undergraduates and graduates.
