Confirming your fee status after you apply
Your fee status is not confirmed until after you apply for admission. Once you start studying, your fee status cannot be updated if your circumstances change.
Notifying you about your fee status
You will be notified of your fee status in your account on the University's MyEd portal.
Follow-up fee status questionnaire
If there is not enough information in your application to work out what your fee status is, you will need to complete a fee status questionnaire.
Your fee status will then be assessed based on the information that is provided in the fee status questionnaire.
You will hear a response from us within 10 working days.
Provide all the necessary information and documentation
If you receive a notification to complete a fee status questionnaire, it is important that you complete the questionnaire as soon as possible.
Make sure you provide the full information requested along with supporting documentation. This helps us to determine your fee status as quickly as possible.

Follow our guide to starting, completing and submitting your online fee status questionnaire in EUCLID.
Request for further information
After completing the questionnaire, we may contact you to request further information. Please respond to any request for additional information within the requested deadline.
EU, EEA and Swiss nationals
If you are from the EU, EEA or Switzerland, we will automatically ask you to fill out a fee status questionnaire. This is to make sure we assign you the correct fee status under the rules and agreements in place after Brexit.
You can read more about your fee status as an EU, EEA or Swiss national on our ‘work out your fee status’ pages.
Each University within Scotland is responsible for making their own fee status assessments within their legislative frameworks. The regulations by which SAAS defines a 'home' student for funding, may differ form how the University of Edinburgh chooses to define a home student for tuition fee purposes.
Review and appeal requests
You can ask to review or appeal your fee status if you disagree with it.
You must request a review or appeal of your fee status before accepting an offer of admission.
If you receive an offer to study at the University of Edinburgh, and we later revise your fee status based on your review or appeal request or due to changes in government guidelines, we may reassess your application. This could mean we have to withdraw your offer.
Request a review of your fee status
If you disagree with your fee status classification, or your circumstances change in a way which may affect your fee status, you are can ask for a review.
Your fee status review request must be made within 14 days of the initial determination of your fee status.
Appeal your fee status
After you have received the outcome of your review, if you still disagree with our decision, you may appeal in writing.
Your appeal should be made within 14 days of a response to your request for a review.
Email your requests to the fees team
Requests for reviews and appeals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We aim to respond to requests within seven working days.

Once your fee status has been confirmed, it applies for your entire programme and will not change. Even if:
