The tuition fee you pay will vary depending on your fee status and your programme and are listed on our Taught degree programmes A-Z.

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 in Scotland and I am studying in Scotland."

If the above statement applies to you then you will probably be classified as a Scottish student for fee purposes.
