Fees and funding

The level of tuition fees that you will pay in Scotland is determined by your nationality and the country where you are ‘ordinarily resident’.

European Union undergraduate students
If you are an EU domiciled, full-time first degree student you should be eligible to have your tuition fees to be paid by the Scottish Government through the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS).

International undergraduate students
In general, universities charge fees at a higher rate to overseas students from outside the European Union. To confirm your tuition fee status, you can refer to the UK Council for International Student Affairs.

Post-graduate study
EU and international applicants who wish to find information regarding course fees should contact the institution(s) they are interested in applying to directly. Details of Scotland’s 19 universities can be found on the Study in Scotland website.

There is a range of international student scholarships and awards available for studying in Scotland covering all levels from undergraduate to PhD. For more information, visit the Scholarships section of the website.
