Raising Fees Alone will not Guarantee the Best Cambridge Graduate Experience
A CUSU Briefing on Likely Fee Increase for Graduate Students and
What Graduates Can Do to Secure the Best Outcomes
Discussions are underway on a plan to increase the total fees that graduates at the University of Cambridge pay. CUSU is working to ensure that any increase to the fees that graduates pay are accompanied by 1) improvements to the quality of your College and University experience and 2) consultation with graduate students on their education experience. Please check out our briefing 'Raising Fees Alone will not Guarantee the Best Cambridge Graduate Experience' for more information.
Read the briefing HERE.
To help us ensure that fee rises are accompanied by a quality graduate experience please fill out our survey! Data from this survey complements current improvements being made to taught postgraduate programmes and will be used to improve your College experience.
