Matriculation - Paying Fees

All students must matriculate with the University at the beginning of their studies, and then matriculate for each new academic session thereafter.

Matriculation carries with it the agreement to abide by University rules. This includes payment of all student fees relating to your studies and allows access to the services and facilities offered to you by the University.

Payment of tuition fees, module fees and other charges or costs can be made with one or a combination of payment options and the flowchart may help in your decisions:

 

Matriculation 2017/18

To make the best use of your time at matriculation and during the year it is suggested to pay online or use bank to bank transfer if you are self funding. And if you have external funding then evidence of financial support or sponsor funding can be sent as an attachment to:

  • fees@ed.ac.uk - where the external funder is paying fees direct to the University - except for students with awards from SAAS or Student Finance or have US loans or a career development loan
  • feepayment@ed.ac.uk - where the external funder is paying fees to the student for onward remittance to the University - includes students with a career development loan
