This page is for Scottish, UK and EU students. If you are an International student please read our How to Pay (International) guide
Tuition Fee Application Procedure
Scottish domiciled students can apply to the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) for payment of their fees. Students domiciled in the rest of the UK (RUK) can apply for loans to fund their tuition fees which will be paid direct to the University by the Student Loans Company (SLC). It is generally not possible to change your domicile other than the one associated with your place of residence. Please read the guidance notes below for your country of domicile. You should also note that if your fees are to be paid by SAAS or the SLC then you are responsible for ensuring the fees are paid in full and on time.
Scottish/EU Students (not England, Wales or Northern Ireland)
As a student starting full-time Higher Education, you will not have to contribute to your tuition fees if you are fully funded by SASS. Although you will not have to contribute to your tuition fees, you MUST 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 will 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 Registry.
Rest of UK (RUK) Students (England, Wales or Northern Ireland)
As a student starting full-time Higher Education, you will have to apply for loan funding to contribute up to £9,000 per year if you are studying for an undergraduate degree. Please access the following websites to apply for funding:
Your tuition fees become due when you matriculate. If you have received your Student Finance Entitlement letter by the time you matriculate, you will not have to pay anything towards your fees when you matriculate in September.
If you have not received your Student Finance Entitlement letter by matriculation, you will be regarded as a self-funding student and be expected to make arrangements to pay the tuition fees of £9,000 (See “How to make payment” below). Refunds will be given should you subsequently receive information regarding your loan funding which you should present to Registry.
European Free Movers and Visitors
European Free Movers and Visitors who are self-funded can pay as per instructions in the How to Make Payment section.
Full Time Students (Annual Fee)
You will be regarded as a self-funding student if you have not applied or are not eligible to apply for funding from any of the funding bodies referred to above. You may also be regarded as a self-funding student if the University has not received notification, by matriculation, from your funding body confirming that you are to be funded. Your fees become due on re-matriculation and can be paid in full or by setting up 8 mid-month Direct Debit instalments within 28 days of matriculation. (See 'How to Make Payment' below).
Part-Time Students (Charged per Module)
Module fees can be paid in full prior to commencement of the module or by 3 mid-month Direct Debit instalments, the first instalment due in the first month after commencement of the module. If you wish to pay by instalments, please contact the Cash Office by email CashOffice@dundee.ac.uk or by telephone +44 (0)1382 388911.
Fees Unpaid After 28 Days
If you have not paid your tuition fees in full or arranged to pay by Direct Debit instalments within 28 days of matriculation you will be liable to pay a late payment fee of 3.5% on your tuition fee. The precise level of the late payment fee depends upon the amount of your tuition fees. For example, an overdue fee of £4,500 will incur a late payment fee of £157.50 (maximum charge £400).
In the event that you default on any of the payments due under your instalment plan, the University reserves the right to cancel the instalment plan, which will result in your fees becoming due in full immediately and a late payment fee being applied.
The consequences of non payment of your tuition fees are:-
- your access to University facilities e.g. Library and IT Services, will be revoked
- you will be withdrawn from your studies e.g. unable to receive tuition and sit exams
- your funding body will be advised of your student status being revoked
- you will not receive your degree certificate
- your details will be passed to a debt collection agency
You can make payment of your contribution/fees by any of the methods detailed below. Your sponsor must make payment in full. Enquiries concerning payment should be directed to the Cash Office by email CashOffice@dundee.ac.uk or by telephone +44 (0)1382 388911.
