How to finance your education is, understandably, a big issue for students considering studying at university.

We can help you to plan ahead and estimate the cost of your tuition fees as well as explore a number of options available to help support you financially while you study.

Tuition fees

Tuition fees must be paid for each year of your programme. UK students may be eligible to have these paid by a Student Finance agency or through a Tuition Fee Loan from the government.

Scholarships and bursaries

You can apply for scholarships and bursaries from Heriot-Watt, the Government, research councils, funding bodies and employers to financially support your studies.

Financial support

Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to apply for student loans and maintenance grants to help pay for your tuition fees and/or your accommodation and other living costs.
