Education System

In Scotland, 15 universities and three other higher education institutions are charged with delivering higher education across a broad range of vocational and academic qualifications, including certificates, higher national certificates, diplomas, higher national diplomas as well as a variety of foundation, undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate degrees

Living Costs in Scotland

While tuition fees are often at the top of students’ minds when choosing their study abroad destination, there are other costs to keep in mind when figuring out the financial resources necessary to make your study abroad dreams into a reality. So we’ve compiled a list of the average prices for some typical expenses in Scotland. You should still factor in the availability of student discounts for some of these items.

Tuition Fees

Scotland is unique in that tuition the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) pays the fees for local and EU students. International students must pay considerably more to study in Scotland – between £10,000 and £30,000 per year depending on the chosen degree.

Language and Culture

English is the fourth most spoken language in the world, as well as the language of the international professional world. Therefore, whether you choose to simply soak up the culture through exposure or undertake a formal language course, learning or improving your English whilst studying in Scotland would be invaluable. Qualifications for English language instruction from Scotland are internationally respected.

Entry Requirements and Student Visas

Entry to undergraduate study is handled by UCAS, whose website receives all applications. Each course has its own entry requirements – the academic qualifications that you are required to have in order to undertake the university course. You will need to submit proof of these qualifications, as well as a personal statement and a proof of language proficiency if you are a non-native speaker. For Master’s or PhD courses, applications should go straight to your chosen institution of study.

International students, including EU-students entering Scotland for the first-time, will need a visa to study in Scotland. This could be a Short-Term Visa, Tier 4 (General) Student Visa or a Tier 4 (Child) Student Visa depending on duration of study. Whether you are allowed to work in the UK or extend the visa is dependent on which one you are applying for. To get a visa you will be required to provide some or all of the following: Passport details, a ‘Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies’, a ‘secure English language test’ and proof that you are able to support yourself financially.
