Tuition fees

If you are an EU Undergraduate student and you have already started at Glasgow (in or before academic year 2020/21) you will continue to benefit from free tuition in Scotland. You are already admitted as Scottish/EU fee status student and will retain that status for the duration of your studies. EU students enrolling in 2020 will remain eligible for tuition fee support from the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) for the duration of their undergraduate degree.

EU Settlement Scheme

You need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme if you wish to remain in the UK after the end of the transitional period. 

Please note that those who enter the UK before 23:00 on 31 December 2020 will have until 30 June 2021 to apply under the scheme. However we strongly advise making your application as soon as you can after settling in Scotland, as there may be unforeseen delays or difficulties with the application process.
