International students are to benefit from a system of fixed fees.
The changes, which will be introduced for academic year 2014/15, will cover all full time undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes lasting more than one year.
This means that international students coming to Edinburgh for programmes starting in September 2014 will know before they start their studies exactly what they will pay each year.
The changes will not affect those students already undertaking a programme at the University or those taking up a programme of study in 2013/14.
The new arrangements regarding international fees have come about as a result of University staff working in collaboration with colleagues from the University Students' Association, EUSA.
Further information about the exact level of the international fees for entry 2014/15 will be made available by the end of March.
