You'll need enough money to pay for your fees and living costs while studying in Edinburgh.
The living costs requirement for international students is set by UK Visas and Immigration. For Edinburgh it's £1,023 per month.
Visit our international students section for more information on visas and immigration.
Living costs will vary depending on individual budgets and lifestyles. We recommend you try and create a monthly budget to keep track of your spending.
The Edinburgh Napier Students' Association has produced a handy Student Survival Guide which includes a breakdown of prices to show an example of monthly budgeting.
Students will often take on part-time work opportunities to support their studies and lifestyle. You can find out more information about such opportunities via our careers team and the number of hours you are permitted to work as a Tier 4 visa student from the UK Council for International Student Affairs.
If you’re unsure whether you're an Overseas student, fill out our tuition fee classification questionnaire and we will determine your fee status.
