Fee status and admissions
Each application undergoes an initial screening so we can check your tuition fee status.
What is my fee status?
There are different fees for students whose status is ‘home-Scotland/EU', those whose status is 'home-RUK' and those whose status is ‘Overseas’.
If you are unsure of your fee status, information and advice is available from the University and from the UK Council for International Student Affairs.
Applicants from Scotland and the EU
Applicants from Scotland and other European Union (EU) countries apply for a restricted number of Government-funded places.
For most subjects we receive far more applications than there are places available. Where there are restrictions on the number of places the University can make available, competition for places is often extremely high.
Applicants from the rest of the UK (England, Wales and Northern Ireland)
Applicants from England, Wales and Northern Ireland apply for a number of places that is not restricted by the Government.
However, due to limited capacity and the high volume of applications received, competition for places is often very high.
Non-EU international applicants
Those applicants who do not qualify for Scotland/EU or rest of UK (RUK) fee status – normally international students from outside the EU – apply for an unrestricted number of places but must pay the full (or ‘overseas’) fee.
All graduate applicants to Veterinary Medicine and all applicants to the Law Graduate Entry programme pay full fees.
You can find information on the ratio of applications, offers and accepted applicants for each of our degree programmes in our admissions statistics.
