Undergraduate Funding

Tuition Fees

If you're an international or EU student without pre-settled or settled status, then you pay international tuition fees. 

International and EU 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 all new International/EU students. 

The Tuition fee rate published for new 2022-2023 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 overseas students need to pay the whole annual fee in advance. You pay your fees during the online registration process

Find 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. 

The good news is that 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. 

EU & International Student Scholarships

The Abertay International Scholarship is an award of up to £12,000 for new international undergraduate students. This scholarship is awarded as a £3,000 deduction from the annual tuition fees. Find out more here.

We offer more International and EU Scholarships and Bursaries to help support your studies. Find out what's available.

Potential Funding Options

You may be eligible for additional funding from trusts and bursaries.

You might decide to get a part-time job to help support yourself. Contact our free careers service by emailing 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 a useful page of sites about budgeting and discounts for all students.
