The tuition fee you pay will vary depending on your fee status and your programme. Tuition fees are detailed in the table below.
For many applicants, your fee status is the same as your current country of residence. However, not all cases are this straightforward. We use the information you provide on your application to determine your fee status, and will confirm this with you after you submit your application.
"My home is NOT in Scotland or the rest of the UK and I am an EU national."
If the above statement applies to you then you will probably be classified as an EU student.
