All Scottish universities are required to determine fee status in accordance with regulations approved by the Scottish Parliament - the Education (Fees) (Scotland) Regulations 2011.

Your tuition fee status and the level of tuition fee that you pay is determined by your nationality, your ‘settled’ status and the country in which you are ‘ordinarily resident’.

UKCISA (UK Council for International Student Affairs) provides detailed information for students which explain what conditions you have to meet to be entitled to pay the ‘home’ fee rate for studying in Scotland.

Your Tuition Fee Status

Like all other universities in the UK, Robert Gordon University charges different fees dependent on the 'tuition fee status' of students.

Your tuition fee status may be:

  • Scottish
  • EU (European Union outside the UK)
  • RUK (England, Wales and Northern Ireland, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man)
  • Overseas (outside the EU)

We will determine your tuition fee status based on information you supply about yourself during the application process.

If we can't establish your tuition fee status from your application, we will ask you to supply more information.

Your tuition fee status is assessed in accordance with Scottish Government legislation and the Education (Fees and Awards) (Scotland) Regulations 2011.

Normally the tuition fee rate you start your studies on remains with you for the duration of your course, however there are exceptions to this rule.
