I am 18 years old.

I have been accepted to study​ (an undergraduate course)​ at Cambridge University.

I have a Dutch Passport and South African Permanent Residence.

Unfortunately because I have not lived in the EU for the last three years I am not eligible for EU funding despite my Dutch citizenship. I have also just discovered that this also means I am not eligible for 'home' fees, instead I have to pay 'overseas' fees which are roughly three times as much.

​As I don't have South African citizenship I am not eligible for Common Wealth, Third World and other International funding/bursaries/scholarships.​

Does anyone know of funding I am eligble for?

  • Have you checked at Cambridge to see if they offer any scholarships that you are eligible to apply to? – Nosrac Jan 17 '18 at 17:17

    Will your pricing change after, for example, your first year of studies? If this is something which impacts 4 full years, perhaps it would be worth considering deferring acceptance for a year before starting? This may allow you to be considered a 'local' student by the time costing is determined (just an idea, I have no idea if it would work like this). – Grade 'Eh' Bacon Jan 17 '18 at 18:05
  • @Nosrac I have, but they are all for non-EU nationalities or for EU students who 'count' as EU students.... – Mirte Jan 18 '18 at 12:14
  • @Grade'Eh'Bacon Unfortunately it needs to be three years of living in the EU, by then Brexit might have been implemented and I'll have lost my spot so unfortunately not an option (though I also considered it). – Mirte Jan 18 '18 at 12:15
