Pay your tuition fees for Scottish and Rest of UK undergraduate students
Updated on 12 August 2021
Find out the different ways you can pay your tuition fees
How to apply for tuition fee funding
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 are responsible for ensuring your fees are paid in full and on time. If we haven't received payment of your fees from your SAAS or the SLC within three months of matriculation then you will be billed direct.
Scottish 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 have 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 will be expected to make arrangements to pay the tuition fee due at matriculation (see 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 the tuition fee per year if you are studying for an undergraduate degree. Please access the following websites to apply for funding:
- sfengland.slc.co.uk (England)
- studentfinanceni.co.uk (Northern Ireland)
- studentfinancewales.co.uk (Wales)
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.
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 (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.

If information on scholarships / sponsorship is missing please check your Student Profile. If your funding is not shown in your Student Profile please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
A family member or friend is paying using their credit or debit card
If a family member of friend is with you in person, you can log in to My Applications and ask them to complete the payment form.
If they are not with you, they'll not be able to access My Applications for security reasons. Instead, they can use our open payment gateway service to pay using their credit or debit card.
Paying by Western Union or TransferMate
- no currency conversion fees
- no bank charges
- beneficial exchange rates.
Compare both services to find the best rate for you.
Paying by bank transfer
If you are paying by international bank transfer you can pay the initial deposit or full tuition fees. Instalment payments are only available from a UK bank account which you can set up after you arrive in the UK.
To pay by bank transfer your bank will need the following information:
|Currency and amount||quote the GBP tuition fee amount|
|Reference||Full name (start with surname) and student ID number
This is important as we need to know who the fee is from.
|Beneficiary’s name||University of Dundee|
|Address||Nethergate, Dundee, DD1 4HN|
|Bank||Royal Bank of Scotland plc, 3 High Street, Dundee, DD1 9LY, UK|
You also need to instruct your bank that all charges (including those of the University's bank) are paid by the sender. You will need to pay any difference between the fee and the amount received. Please keep your copy of the bank transfer document as you might need to prove to the University that you have made the correct payment.
Tuition fee payment terms
Any balance of tuition fees are due for payment at matriculation during your first week.
You are responsible for ensuring your fees are paid in full and on time. If we have not received payment of your fees from your sponsor within three months of matriculation, then you will be billed directly.
If the University does not receive full payment from your sponsor, for example, where bank charges have been deducted, you will be liable to pay the difference. The Cash Office will let you know about any shortfall.
The University will not pursue any sponsor for amounts of £100 or less. This means you will have to pay all charges and postgraduate continuation of study fees. You will need to pursue your sponsor yourself for any money you consider to be your sponsor's liability.
If you fail to pay your tuition fees
If you have not paid your tuition fees in full or arranged to pay by Direct Debit instalments by the date given on your tuition fee invoice you will be liable to pay a late payment fee of 3.5% on your tuition fee (maximum charge £400).
The total late payment fee depends on your tuition fee amount. For example, an overdue fee of £4,500 will incur a late payment fee of £157.50.
If you do not make a payment which is due under an instalment plan, we reserve the right to cancel the instalment plan. This will result in your fees becoming due in full immediately and you will be charged a late payment fee.
If you do not pay your tuition fees
- we will revoke access to University facilities such as the Library and your IT account
- you will be withdrawn from your studies, you will be unable to receive tuition and sit exams
- we will tell your funding body that your student status has been revoked
- you will not receive your degree certificate
- your details will be passed to a debt collection agency
- if you are a Student visa (was Tier 4) holder: we will notify UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) that we are no longer sponsoring your Visa. This will result in your Visa being invalid and you will be required to return home.
