Pay your tuition fees with an NHS bursary
Once your NHS bursary is confirmed, you must send us proof of your funding. If your bursary does not cover all your tuition fees, then you must pay the remaining sum.
How we process NHS bursary funding
Funding from the NHS (National Health Service) may be available if you are studying a programme in medicine or dentistry. If you receive an NHS bursary, then we will send an invoice to the NHS.
If you are an undergraduate student, then an NHS bursary should cover all your tuition fees. But if you are a postgraduate student, then your NHS bursary may not cover all your tuition fees.
If your bursary does not cover all your tuition fees, then you will need to pay for the rest of your tuition fees.
Send us proof of your NHS bursary
After you receive confirmation of your funding, you will need to send evidence to the Fees team.
In your email, use the subject heading: ‘Evidence of NHS bursary’.
If you have provided proof of funding
If you have provided proof of your NHS bursary and if your award letter states the funding is for your whole programme, then you do not need to send us the evidence for future years of study.
Register how you will pay your tuition fees (if you have not done so)
This form gives you directions on how to pay your tuition fees and lets our team know how you intend to pay your fees. If you have not yet filled it out, you should do this now.
You will need to complete this form once at the start of every academic year, or whenever the way you fund your studies changes.
You do not need to complete this form if you have done so previously in the current academic year. Only complete it again if the way you fund your studies has changed.
Complete your student registration online
As part of the tuition fees payment process, you will need to complete your student registration online for each academic year.
How to pay any remaining tuition fees
If your NHS bursary does not cover the full amount of tuition fees, then you must pay the rest. We recommend you check your balance in My finance to see if you owe anything and to avoid receiving any payment reminder letters.
You are responsible for any tuition fees not covered by your funding.
Make a payment
You can make a payment for any remaining tuition fees by either of the following methods:
pay by instalment by setting up a Recurring Card Payment (RCP) so we can take payments on fixed dates throughout the academic year
make one payment
Check My finance
My finance is now available
My finance is now reopen. You can use it to make payments for fees.
If you can't see a payment applied to your invoice on the system, please allow a couple of days before trying to view it again. Our team is actively working on this.
We are still in the process of charging some fees, so you may not see an invoice when you log in initially. The Fees and Student Support Team are working actively on this and hope to have all fees charged by the end of September.
Deposit payments have still to be recorded on the system. These will be deducted from your tuition fee invoices in the next two weeks.
Please be aware that sponsor invoices may not appear on your account until end of September.
If you have any problems making a payment, you can contact the EdHelp team via their website edin.ac/edhelp or by calling 0131 651 5151 and selecting the option for questions regarding fee payments (phone lines open Monday to Friday, 10am to 4.30pm), but will be closed on Monday 19th of September.
You can find a record of your invoice and any fee payments in My finance. You can find My finance by logging into MyEd.
Do you need help?
You may need to pay other fees for your programme (for example, module fees or dissertation fees).
You can find out if you need to pay extra fees for your programme on the University’s degree finder.
The amount you owe will appear in My finance after your invoice has been raised.
Module fees and individual course fees
Any module or individual course fees must be paid as soon as possible and before the start date of your course. You cannot pay these as instalments.
Dissertation fees and postgraduate research costs
Dissertation fees and postgraduate research costs can be paid as part of your instalment plan.
If you have paid a deposit towards your programme, this will be deducted from the total amount of fees you have to pay.
Your deposit will not appear on your invoice.
If you pay your deposit early in the year, there may be a delay before this shows on your student account.
If you pay your tuition fees in one payment, make sure you deduct the deposit from the total amount.
If you pay with RCP (Recurring Card Payment), the deposit will automatically be deducted from your 3 instalments.
If you’re having financial problems, we encourage you to book an appointment to speak to our team. We will offer support and provide options available. We hold these appointments on Microsoft Teams.
Before your appointment, think about a payment plan that might work for you.
We will assess your circumstances and decide on the best plan for you.
