Cambridge maths graduates will not be able to claim a grant of up to £3,000 a year to cover the cost of fees they paid for the courses, but the government will still be paying for them.
The government announced last week that students who did not pay for the maths course in Cambridge would have to pay back the £3.3m that it had lent the university.
A statement from the government said the funding had been used to provide support for students, teachers and staff and to provide other support.
“Cambridge has consistently maintained that it will be able meet its financial commitments and will continue to do so,” it said.
“The grant will cover the costs of the university’s current annual fees, including costs of teaching, research and staff, as well as additional support that Cambridge will need in the future.”
Cambridge, the world’s third-most-studied university, will continue paying students who paid for maths courses through the end of the academic year, although the government has decided to allow students to continue to use their grant.
The statement said that if students had not paid for their course, “they will not receive the full benefit of this grant.”
In a blog post, Cambridge’s principal academic, Professor David Haddad, said he had been “shocked” by the news.
“This is really the moment where we had to say that Cambridge is a very special place.
And I don’t think we could have predicted the impact that it would have,” he said.
Professor Haddaddad said the announcement was a “historic day for Cambridge” and that the university was “working to build a world-class education system that will ensure the future prosperity of the UK”.
“But the impact of this decision is real, it has the potential to make life more difficult for those who are most in need, and it has given us hope that we can achieve the same level of excellence as other nations.” “
‘We had to think hard’ The announcement came as more than 200 of the world-leading universities in maths and science released their results, showing the UK was performing well on a global stage. “

“I am absolutely shocked by the decision to stop the grant, I think that is a huge mistake,” said Peter Johnson, the former head of Cambridge’s Mathematical Sciences Centre.
“It’s just a very sad thing to do and it shows a lack of commitment to a university that is so renowned in the maths world.”
Professor Haddon said the university had been working for years to ensure the grants were used.
“We have been trying to get the money back to Cambridge.
We had to put a lot of effort in, and we worked very hard to get it back,” he added.
In addition to the Cambridge grant, other universities around the world were being criticised by students for not paying their maths students the full cost of their course. “
As a university we were very, very much in the national interest and this decision really shows a failure on the part of the government.”
In addition to the Cambridge grant, other universities around the world were being criticised by students for not paying their maths students the full cost of their course.
Last year, the University of California, Berkeley, said it was also considering a similar decision.
The chancellor of the University College London, David Haigh, said in a statement that the government’s decision to end the Cambridge mathematics grants was “unacceptable”.
“I do not believe that Cambridge should continue to receive grants, regardless of whether they are paid back or not,” he wrote.
“In my view, these grants were intended to encourage the best students to study mathematics at Cambridge.
I would therefore be seeking to consider other funding streams to ensure that the University continues to be a world leader in mathematics and science.”
Cambridge University’s Mathematics and Science Centre said that its funding had not been affected.
“Despite the announcement by the Department for Education that Cambridge Mathematics and Sciences Centre will not have to provide funding for future years, the Mathematics and Research Centre continues to offer support to students in Cambridge in order to support the ongoing funding arrangements for the Cambridge Mathematics Sciences Centre,” a statement said.
It added: “We will continue providing support for Cambridge students and staff who pay for Cambridge Mathematics Services and the Cambridge Teaching and Research Council (CTRC) as well.”
