EU entrants fee status
If you are an EU national with pre-settled or settled status living in the UK you are likely to have a 'Home (Scotland)' fee status, and you may be eligible to have your tuition fees paid by the Scottish Government.
UK nationals who are living in the EU/EEA/Switzerland are likely to be considered as either 'Home' or 'Rest of the UK' for tuition fee purposes.
In all instances, applicants must meet the residency conditions of three years in the UK/EU/EEA/Switzerland.
Full details, including the definition of ordinary residence, can be found in the SAAS guidance document UK, EU, EEA and Swiss nationals residence conditions. This document also explains the student finance options for eligible students.
If you are a student who normally lives in the EU, you are likely to have an 'Overseas' fee status and you may be eligible to apply for support and funding in your home country to help you cover the costs of university.
As a student at the University of St Andrews, you will be expected to pay fees every year that you are in attendance. The amount you will have to pay depends on your fee status and the degree you are studying for.
You may be eligible for tuition fee support within your home country. You must either pay your tuition fees online in advance or upon matriculation in September. Other payment options, including an instalment plan, are described in detail on the how to pay your fees web page.
If you are studying in the Faculty of Arts, Divinity or Science, tuition fees for 2023-2024 will be £28,190. Tuition fees will be fixed at this level for the duration of your programme.
If you are studying in the Faculty of Medicine, tuition fees for entrant students in 2023-2024 will be £35,920. The Scottish Government has introduced a mandatory national levy for overseas medical students for each year of study to cover the costs of NHS clinical teaching, which is reflected in the tuition fee. Fees for students starting their programme in 2023-24 may increase annually during the course of study to take account of inflationary pressures or a rise in the mandatory levy. Increases are not expected to exceed 10% per year.
Bursaries and scholarships
The University of St Andrews is committed to attracting the very best students regardless of their financial circumstances. We offer a large number of bursaries and scholarships to undergraduate students, and there are also a number of external grants offered from outside the University.

You will incur a number of expenses and charges at university that are not covered by annual tuition fees, including the cost of accommodation and individual subsistence. You should contact the relevant authority in your home country to find out what financial support may be available to assist you with living costs.
As an international student, you will be required to demonstrate that you have sufficient funds available to complete your studies when you apply for your student visa.
