2017 entry

Fee status and admissions

Each application undergoes an initial screening so we can check your tuition fee status.

What is my fee status?

There are different fees for students whose status is ‘home-Scotland/EU', those whose status is 'home-RUK' and those whose status is ‘overseas’.

If you are unsure of your fee status there is information and advice available from the University and from the UK Council for International Student Affairs.

Those applicants who do not qualify for Scotland/EU or rest of UK (RUK) fee status - normally international students from outside the EU - apply for an unrestricted number of places but must pay the full (or ‘overseas’) fee.

International applicants

If you are are classified as an international student for fees purposes it is not to late to apply for many of our programmes, except Medicine, Vet Medicine and some of our high-demand programmes. 

You can check which of our programmes are still available on the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) website, using their course search.

Entry requirements

For all programmes, except Medicine (where the Government restricts the number of RUK and international places available), international applicants who meet, or are predicted to meet, the minimum entry requirements are likely to be made an offer.

Our entry requirements are normally expressed with an upper and lower level, for example, AAA-ABB for A Levels or 37-32 points (grades 666 at HL) for International Baccalaureate. The upper level shows the typical entry requirement, for example AAAA for A Levels, and the lower level shows the minimum entry requirement, for example ABB.

Minimum entry requirements are detailed for each programme in the 2017 prospectus. You can download the Undergraduate Prospectus for 2017 entry or request a printed version.

Applicants from Scotland and other European Union (EU) countries apply for a restricted number of Government-funded places.

For most subjects we receive far more applications than there are places available. Where there are restrictions on the number of places the University can make available, competition for places is often extremely high.

Applicants from the rest of the UK (England, Wales and Northern Ireland)

It is now too late for Applicants from England, Wales and Northern Ireland to apply for 2017 entry, however applications for 2018 entry can be made from September 2017.
