Financial information for international students

The following financial information is for international undergraduates from outside the EU (European Union)

Arrival in College

When you arrive in College for International Freshers’ week, please visit the Student Finance Office, above Housekeeping, during normal working hours as soon as possible. They will answer any questions you have about financial arrangements and give you your College account card.

Deadline for payments due before you arrive

If you are a self-funded student, we require you to pay your annual fees (see below) plus your Advance Deposit, provided that you have received your entry permit for the UK, by 16 September. If you have not received your entry permit by this date, please email the Student Finance Office.

If your fees are paid by a grant-making body, please advise the Student Finance Office as soon as possible.

You will receive an invoice for these payments by 31 August 2017.

Advance Deposit

On coming into residence, all undergraduates are required to pay the College a sum of money, called the Advance Deposit. This is an amount estimated to cover a typical termly bill for accommodation, catering and other college expenses; in the final term of your course it is refunded as a credit on your final bill. The Advance Deposit you are required to pay is £1500. You will then be invoiced at the end of each term for your actual accommodation and catering costs (Accommodation Account) and payment is due by the middle of the following term, giving you a term and a half’s credit.

Tuition Fees

Overseas students, who are not funded by an external organisation, are required to pay their fees annually in advance — for first year students the date is 16 September and in subsequent years the date is mid August. There are two elements to the Cambridge fees — the University Composition Tuition Fee and the College Fee. The Tuition Fee is specific to the course and is listed on the University website.

College Fees

The College Fee for those starting their course in 2017/18 is £7700 p.a.for the duration of the course.

How to Pay Fees and Charges

We strongly advise you to set up a bank account with a UK bank, Karin Bane, Tutorial Officer can provide information on this and proof of status for the bank. If you are an international student a deposit may be required to maintain an account.

All payments to the College, including those for the Advance Deposit and for fees, should be made payable to Churchill College and either handed to the Student Finance Officers or sent to the Accounts Office in advance of arrival. The Student Finance Officers will advise you if you have any doubts as to how much you need to pay. Students may also transfer payments directly into the College’s Bank Account.

The bank account details are:

Lloyds TSB Bank plc

If making a payment by bank transfer always use your full name and college account number (if issued already) as a reference and email the Student Finance Office on students.accounts@chu.cam.ac.uk to advise them of the payment.

You may also pay your Accommodation Account (not fees) by direct debit (automatic payment) from your UK bank account and a form will be sent to you to enable you to do this in due course. If you opt for this method of payment you will still receive an actual account each term, for information, before the money is taken from your bank account.
