Our current tuition fees are listed on the Postgraduate Taught Table of Fees page:

Postgraduate taught tuition fee rates

Students on full-time and part-time programmes of study of more than one year should be aware that annual tuition fees are subject to revision and are typically increased by approximately 5% per annum. This annual increase should be taken into account when you are applying for a programme.

Determine your fee status

All Scottish universities are required to determine fee status in accordance with regulations approved by the Scottish Parliament - the Education (Fees) (Scotland) Regulations 2011.

Your tuition fee status and the level of tuition fee that you pay is determined by your nationality and the country where you are ‘ordinarily resident’.
