Student finance in Scotland 2020 and 2021

As an EU student at university in Scotland, the Student Awards Agency for Scotland will cover your tuition fee if you start your studies before July 2021. You will be eligible for this support for the duration of your studies.  

From 31st July 2021, EU students beginning a new course in Scotland will no longer be eligible for home fee status.  Each university will set its own fees for EU students so you are advised to check this information on the relevant university webpages.

This won’t change if you start a course at a university or further education institution in the UK before July 2021. You will continue to be eligible for ‘home fee status’ – in other words, you will be charged the same tuition fees as UK students, and you can still apply for a government-funded student loan, or have your fees paid by SAAS if you are studying as an undergraduate in Scotland.
