Student Finance

The funding for undergraduate degrees in Scotland is different from the rest of the UK.

Students who are EU nationals and who want to study in Scotland can apply for payment of tuition fees for undergraduate degrees to the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS).

EU students studying or wishing to study in Scotland will be eligible to apply to SAAS for payment of tuition fees if they meet the following criteria:

  • They are EU nationals, or the children or stepchildren of an EU national; and
  • They have been ordinarily resident in the EU or elsewhere in the EEA and Switzerland for the 3 years immediately before the first day of the first academic year of their course; and
  • They are taking a course of full-time study in Scotland and plan to graduate in Scotland.

Graduate Endowment

Some EU students may have to pay a Graduate Endowment after they graduate. This will be just over £2,000 and will increase by the rate of inflation each year. A lot of people are however, exempt from paying.
