The Scottish Government has confirmed that EU students starting their studies in 2020/21 will be entitled to complete their studies post-Brexit without a change in fee status.
If you’re a EU student and meet the eligibility criteria, the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) will pay all your tuition fees for your four year degree that starts in year 2020/21.
This will change from 2021/22 when new EU students will start paying for Scottish university places. See the Scottish Government announcement here.
If you are self-funding your degree, you are expected to have sufficient funds to cover your tuition fees before the start of each academic year.
You arrange payment of your tuition fees as part of your online registration. All EU and non-Tier 4 overseas students can pay the whole fee in advance, or by monthly instalments. Find out more about how to pay on the tuition fee page.
Weekly household costs in Scotland are roughly 20% lower than London, and 10% cheaper than the UK as a whole.
A recent survey found that Dundee is one of the the cheapest cities in the UK to live in. The survey included single people and couples, and covered subjects like the cost of accommodation and grocery shopping.
Loans and grants for living costs are not generally available to EU undergraduate students.
There may be additional funding from trusts, bursaries and scholarships.

You might decide to get a part-time job to help support yourself. Contact our free careers service by emailing email@example.com to discuss this. We recommend working a maximum of 15 hours a week during term time to avoid any impact on your studies.
We have put together a useful page of sites about budgeting and discounts for students.
