Funded Students

If your fees are to be paid by the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) or other sponsor such as your employer, then please ensure you bring your letter of funding to matriculation. Be aware that you are responsible for ensuring your fees are paid in full and on time. If we haven’t received payment of your fees from your sponsor within 3 months of matriculation then you will be billed direct.

In the event that the University does not receive full payment from your sponsor, for example, where bank charges have been deducted from the amount paid by your sponsor, you will be liable to pay the difference. You will be notified of any shortfall or non-payment by the Cash Office. The University will not pursue any sponsor for amounts of £100 or less; therefore, all bank charges and postgraduate continuation of study fees must be paid by the student. It is your responsibility to pursue your sponsor for any fees or bank charges you consider to be your sponsor’s liability.

For English, Welsh and Northern Irish domiciled students postgraduate courses are unlikely to be funded, but check your eligibility at the following websites:

Self-Funded Students


Full Time Students (Annual Fee)
Your fees become due when you matriculate 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 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 the whole amount of 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
