EU Course Fees

EU fees for 2020/2021

EU citizens, and relevant family members, who start a Further or Higher education course in Scotland in the 2020/21 academic year will be charged the same tuition fees and will get the same fee support as Scottish students for the entirety of their course, provided that they meet the residency criteria.

This includes EU citizens starting a course in January 2021.

Fees for EU students and EU family members studying on ESOL courses in semester 2, 2020-21 will be the same as fees in semester 1, 2020-21.

Some EEA (Iceland, Lichtenstein or Norway) and Swiss nationals are also entitled to 'home' fee status. For more information and to check your eligibility, please contact

EU fees for 2021/2022

EU, EEA and Swiss nationals who are 'settled' or 'pre-settled' in the UK will remain eligible to apply for home tuition fees in 2021/2022, providing they meet the residency conditions.

EU, EEA and Swiss nationals who did not live in the UK before 31 December 2020, or who are not eligible to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme for 'Settled' or 'Pre-Settled' status, will be considered international students for fee purposes.

Under the Common Travel Area agreement between the UK and Ireland, students from the Republic of Ireland will be subject to different arrangements to other EU students and will not need to apply for 'settled' or 'pre-settled status'. Irish nationals who have been residing in the Common Travel Area, EEA, or Switzerland for more than 3 years preceding the start of the course will be eligible for home tuition fees.

Irish nationals living elsewhere in the EU (not Republic of Ireland) or outside the EU moving to Scotland to study, will be considered international fee paying students. Please email to check if you qualify for home or international fees.
