    Overseas tuition fees for Band 2, Engineering etc.: £12,219 per year

    Since this is for 2008/09, the fees won't go up by more than *0.06 (inflation)

    Source: http://www.cam.ac.uk/admissions/unde...nal/costs.html

    Besides, i'm applying for economics anyway which is £9,327 per year (2008/09).
    Already much cheaper than LSE.
    Your college will charge extra college fees buddy, make sure you factor that in.

    Oh! You mean cheaper fees relative to Imperial!! I apologise, my bad. I thought you were comparing the fees charged for home and international students at Cambridge.

    That's true, the Cambridge tution fee will exceed 20k since your college will charge you a lot, but fortunately, they can give you 100% scholarships because they are incredibly rich !

    I bet the IITs would give you a run for your money...
    The IITs never seem to figure highly on any university rankings...I know they are an extremely rough of actual quality, but there has to be something behind their methodology. The highest I've seen the IITs ranked is 57 in a science-based list of universities.

    As I said before, I don't know whether that means much, but I'd still say Imperial is better anyday.

    Becasue the international people don't pay UK taxes, which subsidise the Home students' fees.

    No, no no no. College fees + tuition fees make up the total fees. College fees range between 3000-4000 pounds per year I believe.

    Have you ever wondered why Clinical fees are especially expensive?

    Wtf of course I have wondered. It costs about £200000 to get a medical student from matriculation to graduation.

    Yeah, last year, out of all of the universities in the UK that I applied to, Cambridge fees were the cheapest, at about £9500. Imperial, naturally, was the most expensive at £14400
    It doesn't have to be if Imperial doesn't splash money on white elephant projects like vast empty space outside and inside Faculty (Blue Box) and Tanaka Building.

    There are British (Citizens) students who have to pay full fees. They have to do so if they reside outside the UK/EU for the last three years. (Eg, was expat in Asia) I think this policy is profoundly stupid, seeing as the French can pay local fees for British universities but those British students have to pay int'l fee. :rolleyes:

    The EU nationals don't pay UK taxes either, but they can still enjoy "home" free. This is the point I'm unhappy about.

    I'm just glad I got the cheapest course in Imperial... it's still £15,500, but at least I'm not a medic.
    Maths has the highest students to staff ratio across imperial. For physics it is around 7 to 1 but for us it is 22 to 1 (from tutor). The overcrowding in the LT...
