EU student applicants

We want to reassure European applicants of our commitment to you and everyone in our global community.

We can confirm that tuition fees for eligible EU students starting in 2020/21 will continue to be covered by the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS).  If you are applying for 2020 entry we would encourage you to do so. The Scottish Government has confirmed that students from the EU entering Scottish universities in 2020/21 will see no change in their fee status for the duration of their studies.

You can find more details of how to apply for Scottish Government funding at the Student Awards Agency Scotland website.


We look forward to welcoming you to Heriot-Watt University in September 2020 and should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us:
