Postgraduate tuition fees
Who pays tuition fees?
How and when you pay tuition fees depends on where you’re from.
If you are unsure which category you fall in to, you should complete a fee status enquiry form, which allows us to assess your fees. Tuition fees are higher for international students, and the form enables the University to assess whether you have a relevant connection to the UK that might positively influence your fee status. Guidance notes on applying for student support are available on the UKCISA website.
UK & EU students
Applicants resident in Scotland may apply for tuition fee support for certain programmes that are supported by the Students Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS). Not all programmes are supported for all students, but some programmes have a small number of places that are filled through nominations by the Programme Director.
For non-UK European residents applying to undertake the Diploma version of the same programme tuition fees may also be payable from SAAS.
International students (outside the EU)
Non-EU students should refer in the first instance to the fee schedules.
How much are the tuition fees?
