Funding and Scholarships

Our information on tuition fees, living costs, and research costs should give you a good idea of how much studying at Edinburgh will cost. Typical scholarships and their requirements are also listed. 

Funding Needed

  • Tuition fees (depends on fee status – overseas/home/EU): Tuition fees must be paid in full by each postgraduate student at the beginning of each academic session in September. More information about fees and additional costs can be found on the degree pages themselves
  • Research costs: These come under "Additional programme costs" which include research costs. These must also be paid in full by each postgraduate student at the beginning of each academic session in September. More information about fees and additional costs can be found on the degree pages themselves. 
  • Stipend/ Living expense: In terms of living expenses, you do not need to provide evidence of funding, however, you should be aware that, in applying for admission, you will be taking on a major commitment in terms of both time and money. The University recommends approximately £150 per week if living in University self-catered accommodation and £180 per week if in University catered halls (these figures include rent, lunches and personal expenditure). The University of Edinburgh's Fees and Finance section has more information available about fees and living expenses which you should take a moment to read over.
