Work out your fee status
Before you can work out how much you will pay for your programme, you need to know what your fee status is.
What is a fee status?
Your fee status determines how much you will pay in tuition fees. It is based on your nationality and where you are ‘ordinarily resident’.
For undergraduate degrees, fee status is divided into:
Home - Scotland
Home - RUK (rest of the United Kingdom)
- Graduate Entry (Veterinary Medicine and LLB Ordinary)
- applicants who already hold a degree level qualification
For postgraduate degrees, fee status is divided into:
- Home (UK)
- Online Learning
- all online learning students pay the same rate
EU, EEA and Swiss students
The UK’s transition out of the EU ends on 31 December 2020. After this date, the fee status of new students from, or currently living in, the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, will depend on:
where you live
how long you have lived there
if you have settled or pre-settled status in the UK
If you started your degree before 31 December 2020, your fee status will stay the same for the duration of your studies.
UK nationals living in Europe
If you or your immediate family are from the UK but live in Europe, you may be entitled to a 'home' fee status.
We classify students seeking asylum from within the United Kingdom as equivalent to ‘Scottish domiciled’ for tuition fee purposes in session 2021-2022.
Find out your fee status
If you are unsure about what your fee status is, visit the UKCISA (UK Council for International Student Affairs) website for information on the current fee status regulations.

After you apply
Your fee status is not confirmed until after you apply for admission.
If there is not enough information in your application to work out what your fee status is, we will ask you to complete a fee status questionnaire.
Once you start studying, your fee status cannot be updated if your circumstances change.
