TUITION FEES | Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen
fees for 2012 entry (for UK residents except those in Scotland): £5,000
- £8,500 (no cap for 4-year courses)
Tuition fees for 2012 entry (for
Scottish residents): £0
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.
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:
1 - All business, management and social science courses - £5,000/year
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
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.
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.
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
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.
