What financial support is available?
If your normal home address is in a European Union country outside of the UK, there may be money available to help fund your time at university.
We’re committed to helping students of all ages and social backgrounds enter higher education and recruiting the best students regardless of financial situation.
What help is there?
- 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.
- you may be eligible for your tuition fees to be paid by the Scottish Government
- you may be eligible for government student loans and bursaries
Support with fees
The Scottish Government has confirmed that EU students, studying full time for their first degree and enrolling in the 2018/19 and 2019/20 academic sessions, will be eligible to have their tuition fees paid by the Student Awards Agency Scotland for their full period of study.
Students will be admitted as Scottish/EU fee status students, will retain that status for the duration of their studies, and are eligible for tuition fee support from the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS).
Tuition fee charges for 2019/20 entry have yet to be confirmed. 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.
News for EU applicants
If you have been resident in the UK for three years prior to starting your studies and resident in Scotland by the first day of the first academic year of your programme, you may be entitled to apply for student support.
Further details on financial support for EU students are available from the Student Awards Agency Scotland.
