Undergraduate Funding

Tuition Fees

If you're an international student from outside of the EU, then you pay International tuition fee rates. 

International Undergraduate tuition fee rates can be found here.

Fee Guarantee: We understand you need to know what tuition fees you’ll pay in advance. This is why we give a tuition fee guarantee to International students. 

The Tuition fee rate published for new 2020-2021 entrants will be the same each year, and won’t increase during your four year degree course. 

Paying Tuition Fees

If you are self-funding your studies, you are expected to have sufficient funds available 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-Student Visa overseas students can pay the whole annual fee in advance or by monthly instalments.  You can set up a monthly payment plan during the online registration processFind out more about how to pay on the tuition fee page.


Living Costs

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.
