Payment of Tuition Fees for all Students

Undergraduate students – you may be able to apply to an award body for payment of your fees. The relevant award body is determined by your domicile i.e. your normal place of residence. It is generally not possible to change your domicile in order to apply to an award body other than the one associated with your place of residence.

Please read the relevant guidance notes below. You should also note that if your fees are to be paid by an award body or other sponsor, you are responsible for ensuring the fees are paid in full and on time.

Undergraduate Students Domiciled in Scotland or EU (except England, Wales or Northern Ireland)

As a student starting full-time Higher Education in September 2011, you will not have to contribute to your tuition fees if you are fully funded by the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS).

Although you will not have to contribute to your tuition fees, you must remember TO APPLY TO SAAS EVERY YEAR for payment of your fees.

If you have not received your letter of award from SAAS by matriculation, the University will regard you as a self-funding student and you may be expected to make arrangements to pay the tuition fee due at matriculation (see 'How to Make Payment' below). Refunds will be given should you subsequently receive a letter of award and present this to the Registry.

Undergraduate Students Domiciled in England, Wales or Northern Ireland

New funding arrangements are coming into place for undergraduate Rest of UK students starting a course in September 2012. The annual fee for each course is shown on the relevant course page under Fees and Funding. These fees have been set so that if you are studying at Dundee, you will pay for the same number of years as you would for the equivalent course in the rest of the UK.

However, you are not expected to find that money upfront. The Student Loans Company provide financial services, in terms of loans and grants, to UK undergraduate students studying in the UK. You can apply for a loan to pay the full cost of your fees, and there are also loans and grants towards your living costs. If you apply for a tuition fee loan, this is paid directly to the University.

The University of Dundee also offers bursaries to RUK students please visit the Bursaries webpage for more information.

The various Student Finance links from the Student Loans Company website provide up to date information about the new funding arrangements, information on funding criteria and how to apply.

Please note you should apply in plenty of time, if you have not received your assessment by matriculation, you may be regarded as a self-funding student and be expected to make arrangements to pay your tuition fees. Refunds will be given should you subsequently receive information regarding your contribution and present this to the Registry.

The "relevant date" is the 1st August in the year the student commenced study e.g. a student starting in September 2011 would need to demonstrate he/she was an Irish national on the 1st August 2011.

Undergraduate Self-funding Students

You will be regarded as a self-funding student and required to pay your tuition fees if you have not applied or are not eligible to apply for funding from any of the award bodies noted above (see 'How to Make Payment' below). You may also be regarded as a self-funding student if the University has not received notification, by matriculation, from your award body confirming that you are to be funded.

Late Payment

If you have not paid your tuition fees in full within 30 days of matriculation or arranged to pay by instalments you will be liable to pay a late payment fee of 3.5% on the whole amount of your tuition fee.
