Students from the UK and European Union

There are many ways to fund your study at Edinburgh Napier University, including student loans, grants, bursaries and scholarships. However, if you're paying your own fees we have in-depth information on how to do so.

UK votes to leave EU - University statement

The United Kingdom has voted in a referendum to leave the European Union. Current EU students' immigration status and associated fee status have not changed as a result of the vote. The Scottish Government has confirmed that free tuition will continue for EU students with a place to start in academic year 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19.

Fees

The amount you have to pay depends on the course you want to apply to. Check the "fees" tab on your course page for more information.

We review our fees every year. They are likely to increase in future years, at least in line with inflation.

Funding

There are a range of postgraduate scholarships and bursaries which are available to support our students. For a full list, please use our searchable database. Part-time employment can offer another avenue of support and our careers advisors can offer advice about finding work.

If you find yourself in financial difficulty, our student advisors can offer support to manage any financial issues you may have.

SAAS funding

SAAS offers a universal student loan entitlement of £10,000 for all eligible one-year full-time taught postgraduate students. This comprises of a tuition fee loan up to £5,500 (available for Scottish and EU domiciled students) and a non-income assessed living cost loan of £4,500 (available for Scottish domiciled students).

Eligibility

Check SAAS' eligibility rules if you're not sure whether you're eligible for funding.

How to pay

Students who are paying their own fees, or being funded by a sponsor will pay their fees directly to the University.

You can arrange to pay fees in full at the start of your course or set up a recurring card payment.

It's important to plan how you are going to pay for your tuition fees in advance, as unfortunately if you are unable to pay, you will have to leave your course. 

Option 1: payment in full

We accept payment by cash, cheque, direct fund transfer, and by credit or debit card (we accept Visa, Visa debit, Visa electron and Mastercard) on our ePay secure payment site.

If you are studying 40 credits or less per trimester then payment must be made in full.

Please ensure payment is made before matriculation.

By post: Send your cheque, in pounds sterling, made payable to "Edinburgh Napier University (Fees)" with your matriculation number clearly printed on the back to Finance Services, Sighthill Campus, Sighthill Court, Edinburgh, EH11 4BN, Scotland.

By telephone: Call the Cash Office on 0131 455 6240 / 6343 / 6005.

Option 2: Set up a payment plan

You can set up a payment plan prior to or at matriculation using our secure ePay site.

Payment plan options for students starting in September are:

  • 50% in October and the balance in January
  • Three payments in October, January and March
  • Six monthly payments from October until March

Payment plan options for students starting in January are:

  • 50% in February and the balance in May
  • Three payments in February, May and July
  • Six monthly payments from February until July


Option 3: Nominate a sponsor to pay your fees

If your fees are being paid for you by a sponsor (including a government award body) you must provide evidence of sponsorship or award at matriculation so that an invoice can be issued to the named person or organisation.

If you are being sponsored for more than one academic year this information will need to be updated at the start of each new academic year.

If your sponsor withdraws financial support or fails to pay all or any part of your fees you remain liable and will have to pay any amount outstanding to the University.

Part-time or distance learning courses

These courses are billed on a modular based, and therefore students will be invoiced per trimester. You can pay in full each trimester, or by payment plan if you are studying more than 40 credits per trimester.

You can set up a payment plan prior to or at matriculation using our secure ePay site or by calling Finance on +44 (0)131 455 6120.

Payment plan options for students starting in September are:

  • 50% in October and the balance in January
