English, Welsh and Northern Irish students

The tuition fee you pay will vary depending on your fee status and your programme.

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.

"I am a UK citizen and my home is in England (or Northern Ireland, Wales, Jersey, Guernsey or the Isle of Man) and I am studying in Scotland."

If the above statement applies to you then you will probably be classified as Rest of UK for fee purposes. RUK students are UK citizens who have been resident in the UK (outside Scotland) for at least three years before the start of their programme of study.
