Course fees

We strive to enable all qualified applicants to study on the IDBE and are pleased to offer a range of merit and need-based scholarships and bursaries for 2020 entrants on admission. Competition for funding varies from year to year, so applicants are strongly encouraged to apply. Find out more.


Master's Programme

The Combined Graduate Fee (VAT-exempt) for the IDBE 2020–2022 is £10,725 per year for Home/EU and overseas students, ie £21,450 in total.

Approximately 25 per cent of the fee covers membership of a Cambridge College, which provides a range of domestic and pastoral services. It excludes accommodation and subsistence costs; however students are offered the option of reasonably priced accommodation at their College.

As a member of the college you will have a college account and will be able to use your University card to pay for meals as long as you have added money to it. Accomodation, food and drinks are provided by Wolfson College at a reduced member rate.

Postgraduate Certificate

The course fee for the Postgraduate Certificate is £6,240 for Home/EU and overseas students. This includes accommodation for the two residential workshops in Cambridge, but not subsistence.

IDBE master’s applicants may wish to consider the scholarship and bursary opportunities available. More information about the awards on offer can be found here.
