Visiting & non-graduating Postgraduate tuition fees

Tuition fee information for visiting and non-graduating postgraduates.

Definition

Visiting students are students who are studying or conducting research at the University for a short period of time, i.e. for less than or up to one year. Visiting students will be registered on a degree programme at another higher education institution. Credit gained and/or research conducted at Edinburgh will transfer back to the home institution and may count towards the student’s final qualification. They will not graduate from the University of Edinburgh.

All visiting students who attend the University for more than two weeks must be registered on the University’s student record system.

Visiting Taught Postgraduate students

If you are admitted for one semester, you will be charged 33% of the relevant degree programme annual fee.

Visiting Research Postgraduate students

If you are admitted to the University for less than or up to twelve weeks, you will not be charged a tuition fee.

If you are admitted for more than twelve weeks and up to and including twelve months, you will be charged a flat fee rate which will be £650 in session 2017-18 (£610 in session 2016-17).

Non-graduating students are individuals not registered on a degree programme here or elsewhere who are taking one or more taught courses or undertaking supervised research at the University of Edinburgh.
