Paying Fees

Making arrangements for payment of student fees is just one part of the matriculation process to become a student at The University of Edinburgh.

Tuition fees and related charges are due in full on or before matriculation at the start of the academic session and each new session thereafter. Self-funding students can pay in full or by instalment under the University's instalment scheme. Students receiving sponsorship or financial support may need to provide us with official confirmation that tuition fees are being paid by government funding, an educational loan, bursary or scholarship.

Fees charged for courses provided on a modular basis are invoiced at course level (ICL) and are due in full on or before matriculation and at the start of each module or course thereafter. Other student fees, charges or costs are due in full during the academic year when notified.
