Find details of tuition fees and opportunities for scholarships and financial support for our PGDE programmes.
Tuition fees and costs
Annual tuition fees are listed on the Postgraduate Study Programme Fees pages related to your desired pathway, exit level and duration of study.
- PGDE Primary
- PGDE Secondary
Note that fees remain the same for PGDE Secondary students who wish to qualify for 'dual subjects'. Eg, please take fees for 'German' as indicative of fees for 'German and French'.
Fee Status and Government Funding
The PGDE attracts the same levels of UK government support as an undergraduate degree programme. Therefore, tuition fees for eligible students from Scotland and non-UK European Union countries are expected to be paid by the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS). Check your fee status to see whether you are eligible.
Students from Scotland and the EU should apply for tuition fee and living cost support to the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS).
Remember to select 'Undergraduate' as your course type when you apply to SAAS.
Students from the rest of the UK should apply for tuition fee and living cost support from their appropriate funding body depending on where they normally live:
