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.

Tuition fees for EU undergraduates starting in 2019 and 2020

The Scottish Government has now confirmed free tuition in Scotland for EU students commencing their studies in 2019 and 2020. Students will be admitted as Scottish/EU fee status students and retain that status for the duration of their studies. EU students enrolling in 2019 and 2020 continue to remain eligible for tuition fee support from the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS).

SAAS tuition fee support for EU undergraduates

EU nationals are eligible to apply to the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS), to have their tuition fees paid to the University on their behalf.

SAAS has confirmed following the referendum that "eligible EU students will continue to have access to free tuition, including tuition fee support from the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS). SAAS will assess applications against existing eligibility criteria, and will provide funding in the normal way. These students will be eligible to apply for funding from SAAS for the duration of that course."
