Tuition fees

As a student at the University of St Andrews, you will be expected to pay fees every year that you are in attendance. Fees may increase annually during the course of your study. The amount you will have to pay depends upon the degree you are studying for and your fee status.

Tuition fees for 2023-2024 are £9,250.

Applicants who defer their entry to the following year after receiving an offer may be required to pay a fee subject to an inflationary increase.

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.
