Tuition fee status

How we determine your fee status for fee paying purposes.

Like other universities in the United Kingdom, we set different tuition fee rates for students whose status is “home” (ie United Kingdom or European Union) and those whose status is “overseas”.

Tuition fees for EU students

EU students enrolling in the 2017/18 and 2018/19 academic years will be admitted as Scottish/EU fee status students and eligible for the same tuition support as Scottish domiciled students and are eligible for tuition fee support from the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS).

The UK Government has confirmed that EU Postgraduate Research students commencing their studies in 2017/18 and 2018/19 will retain their fee status and eligibility for Research Council support for the duration of their programme. Future changes to the fee status and available funding for EU students will depend on the timing and terms of the UK's exit from the European Union.

Determining your fee status

When you apply to study with us we will attempt to calculate your tuition fee status based on the information you provide in your application about your nationality and country of domicile.

You will be notified of your fee status through the Applicant Hub once you have submitted your application.

If we have not been able to determine your fee status, you will need to complete a Fees Status Questionnaire.
