Important message

The Covid-19 pandemic is creating uncertainty for everyone, but we are committed to offering a high-quality experience to all our students.

We have tried to minimise the impact of Covid-19 on the experience we offer all of our students, but we have reluctantly decided to close this degree for 2020 entry. 

We are offering a similar programme of study in Global Agriculture and Food Security.

Living Costs

We have estimated that students need approximately £700 per month for living costs, including room and board. In addition to these expenses, you will also need to consider initial, annual and miscellaneous costs (deposits, bedding, textbooks, insurance, travel, etc).

  • Living costs in Edinburgh are comparable to many major cities in the world.
  • Edinburgh University Student’s Union (EUSA) can offer advice about how to budget
  • Consider the cost of accommodation and daily living expenses as well as the cost of tuition fees.
  • Planning a budget will depend on the type of accommodation selected and spending habits.
  • Food costs will vary, but will account for a significant part of the budget.

Additional Costs

In addition to any tuition fees charged, additional costs include specialised equipment and books (estimated at £150), locker deposits (£10) and transportation costs to Easter Bush Campus using public transport from the city centre, this will be approximately £500 per year, which will be subsidised by the Global Academy of Agriculture and Food Security.
