What is tuition fee status?

Like other UK universities, Edinburgh charges different fees dependent on your 'tuition fee status'.

Your tuition fee status may be:

  • Home-Scotland/EU (Scotland and European Union countries)
  • Home-RUK (England, Wales and Northern Ireland)
  • Overseas (the rest of the world)

Your tuition fee status is determined by:

  • your nationality
  • the country where you normally live - where you are 'ordinarily resident'

Work out your fee status

We will automatically determine your tuition fee status based on information you supply about yourself during the application process.

If we can't determine your tuition fee status automatically, we will ask you to complete an online fee status questionnaire and supply more information.

Fee status information for EU applicants

The Scottish Government has confirmed it will meet the cost of tuition fees for eligible undergraduate EU students starting their degrees in 2020-21, for the duration of their degree programme.​​​​​​

Funding policy for EU nationals and associated groups starting a course of study in academic year 2021-2022 or later will be in line with international fees.

Irish national applicants starting studies in 2021-2022 will classed as ‘home’ student status as a result of the Common Travel Area agreement and therefore will be exempt from international fees.

We will provide further information as soon as we can.
