Areas of support
We are more determined than ever to ensure that our students have the best possible facilities and support to succeed and look forward to opening the New Library built entirely from donations. The College’s commitment to academic excellence includes the provision of financial support, the best possible teaching and pastoral care and in these challenging times we look to you to support our unrestricted fund allowing the Bursar to support need as it arises.
Unrestricted Fund Support
In these unprecedented and uncertain times we've taken the decision to concentrate on raising funds to help our people, the students, researchers, supervisors and academic staff suddenly facing unexpected and exceptional financial difficulties.
The Magdalene Undergraduate Bursary Scheme was introduced in response to the higher university fee structure in 2012, financed in the main by Members as committed as we are to the idea that no one should be deterred from studying at Magdalene due to financial reasons.
The financial climate for graduates wishing to pursue further study has become much more challenging. The College created a Hardship Fund for graduate students who run into financial difficulties. This is possible due to the generosity and support of our Members and Friends.
Access and Outreach
Our Access and Outreach programmes, many of which are funded in part by donations from Members, support students through their educational journey. From school visits in younger years to residential programs for Year 12-13 students, we're committed to encouraging the brightest and best to apply.
The New Library at Magdalene
The College Library remains the focus of the undergraduate students' academic life even in the digital age. Libraries are changing to meet the demands of new technologies and new ways of learning. The New Library will provide our students with a state-of-the-art workspace.
