Medicine (MBChB) fee levels (2017-2018)

Tuition fees for the 2017-2018 academic session.

College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine

From 2016/17 all international students at Scottish Medical Schools must make a contribution to the teaching costs of the NHS (the ACT levy). The University of Edinburgh is subsidising this charge for students, and the fee rate provided includes the portion being paid through student fees. No additional payment for the NHS ACT levy above the fee rate will be required from students.

Medicine MBChB - 6 year programme

There has been a restructuring of fees for overseas (non-EU) students who start the MBChB course in 2017-18. This reflects additional costs of tuition within the National Health Service, and the change to a fully integrated six-year course which includes the award of a Bachelor of Medical Sciences (Honours) Degree in addition to the MBChB degree. These changes to the fees have been balanced across the pre-clinical (years 1-3) and clinical years (years 4-6).
