Cambridge Theological Federation Academic Fees

In planning for your studies you need to take into account the cost of your course (academic fees), accommodation and  living costs. In addition, some of the Member institutions have charges that apply to their students. This page provides information about the academic fees. Information about charges payable to the Member institution you join is given on their websites.

The majority of ordinands are funded by their church or diocese for their training and so do not have to pay academic fees.
