We encourage our candidates to start researching all available financial options and making the necessary plans to ensure that they have sufficient resources to finance the programme as early as possible.

Financing your Master of Accounting is a major commitment, and an early application can help with securing financing, funding or bursaries. This is because many University scholarships are awarded early in the year and you will need to have a Master of Accounting offer in place before you can apply for them.

Please note that in order to fulfil the conditional offer requirements it is necessary to produce evidence of funding sources for both years of the programme.


The total cost for the Master of Accounting for entry in 2021 is £49,000, plus additional expenses as outlined below:

Tuition fees (including course materials) & basic membership of a Cambridge College £49,000
Additional expenses for a total of eight residential weeks* £6,000 – £16,000
Application fee (non-refundable) £150
Total fees £55,150 – £65,150

*Additional expenses are estimated and based on the cost of commercial accommodation and transport to and from Cambridge. Depending on residency, these costs may vary considerably. If College accommodation is available, Colleges may also request a refundable deposit against costs of accommodation booked during the duration of the programme. Some Colleges also charge a small fee for membership of its alumni association, combination room or small costs associated with graduation.

I am incredibly honoured and grateful to have been awarded the first Emily Booth Scholarship for Female Leadership in Business. It is the unfortunate reality that women today still face many challenges in the world of business. I am hoping that the skills and knowledge I gain through the Master of Accounting programme will help me to contribute more powerfully to removing these barriers and empower the next generation.
