Scholarships and Student Funding

Students from the rest of the EU

EU students commencing study in 2017/18 and 2018/19 will continue to be charged the same level of tuition fees as Scottish students for the duration of their programme of study.

Tuition fees

The Scottish Government has confirmed that they will fund tuition fees for EU students enrolling in the 2017 and 2018 academic years. Students admitted as Scottish/EU fee status students will retain that status for the duration of their studies.

First degree students from the rest of the EU studying in Scotland are entitled to have their tuition fees paid by the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS), if they are an EU national, or the family member of an EU national.

Student loans

EU students who have been ordinarily resident in the UK for three years prior to the commencement of their programme of study, and resident in Scotland by the first day of the first academic year of their programme, may be entitled to apply for student support.

This would be a Student Loan, Young Student’s Bursary and any supplementary grants that may apply.

Further details on loans for EU students can be found on the SAAS website.
