Explaining the above: The Scottish Government have announced that students from Scotland will not have to pay tuition fees higher than the current subsidised level of £0. This will apply to all eligible Scottish-domiciled students (and for those from other non-UK EU countries studying in Scotland).

Do I qualify as a Scottish domicile?: Persons who have settled status in the UK and have been resident in the UK for three years before the first day of the first academic year of the course and are ordinarily resident in Scotland on the first academic year of the course will be regarded as domiciled in Scotland for the purposes of support from the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS). UK students who move to Scotland for the purpose of studying are to be regarded as ordinarily resident in the place (in the UK) from which they moved and, therefore, not entitled to support from the SAAS.

What they say: "RGU has adopted a tiered approach with three bands of undergraduate fees reflecting the fact that some courses cost more to deliver than others, for example those involving laboratory or studio work versus classroom teaching. The three bands are as follows:

Band 1 - All business, management and social science courses - 5,000/year
Band 2 - All art and design, architecture and built environment, computing, engineering, health and science courses - 6,750/year
Band 3 - Master of Pharmacy - 8,500/year

Many of the courses at RGU incorporate a full year paid placement as part of the curriculum which will be charged at 50% of the headline fee.

A number of students may be able to secure entry into the 2nd year of one of our 4-year degree programmes. In this case, the student would benefit from a reduction in the total fee payable for the degree programme, equivalent to a full year's fee for the relevant fee band.

The university is also looking to establish a scheme for scholarships and bursaries eligible to all students, including RUK students, and will present plans in due course.

Please note: The MPharm course is of comparable duration to equivalent courses in England and, as an integrated masters programme, comprises 600 credits compared with the 480 norm for a four-year Scottish degree."

Information correct as of February 2012. Please note this page focuses on the new tuition fees system payable by UK (Home) and EU students on a full-time undergraduate degree course in Scotland. The system for international students has not changed radically and, therefore, annual fees for international students are likely to remain unchanged and higher than those stated on this page.
