Cambridge can be a very cost-effective place to train to be a vet. If you are concerned about the cost of your veterinary course, you should look at this site
which includes details of the Cambridge Bursary Scheme, and you should also contact individual college admissions offices for details of the funding they are able to provide. It is extremely important that no one is dissuaded from studying veterinary medicine at Cambridge because of financial concerns, and we are committed to ensuring that this does not happen.
For UK and EU students, tuition fees at Cambridge are set at £9000 per year, and in addition to this, you should also consider living costs; accommodation, meals, study materials, for example.
As you might imagine, there are other costs that a veterinary medicine student should budget for, such as purchasing appropriate protective clothing like steel-capped wellington boots and a dissection kit.

The Department of Veterinary Medicine is able to provide a limited daily allowance for the days when students are at clinical Extra Mural Study (EMS) placements during the vacations and also some limited funding towards the cost of travelling to your placements. We are the only vet school in the country to do this. There are also many scholarships and awards for study, EMS placements and elective projects (which student undertake in final year), which are advertised regularly throughout the academic year and you would be encouraged to apply for these if they are applicable.
