If you’re from anywhere in the European Union (excluding England, Wales and Northern Ireland), and satisfy eligibility requirements your fees will normally be paid for you by the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS).
Different fee levels apply depending on which course you’re studying. To find out the exact fee for your course, visit the relevant course listing and view the Fees option. There you'll see the fees for European Union students.
If you’re eligible, the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) will pay your fees directly to Edinburgh Napier. You must apply each year to SAAS to ensure your fees are paid. For more detailed information and to check your eligibility visit the SAAS website.
You should apply to SAAS as soon as possible, as if you do not have proof of funding on the date of enrolment you will need to pay your fees yourself until you have received an award letter from your funding body.
If you’re unsure whether you're a European Union student, fill out our tuition fee classification questionnaire and we will determine your fee status.
You can also contact our admissions team on firstname.lastname@example.org or call +44 (0)333 900 6040.
UKCISA also provide independent advice on fees and fee status.
Nursing and Midwifery students
The course fee for pre-registration nursing and midwifery courses is paid by the Scottish Government for all eligible EU students.
Eligibility is based on your course, previous funding and residency. Visit SAAS for further information including eligibility criteria.
Paying your fees
Students who are paying their own fees independently (out with SAAS) will pay directly to Edinburgh Napier. Payment, or the setting up of a payment plan, must be completed before you start your studies.
At Edinburgh Napier, one module equals 20 credits (compared to ECTS 10 credits). If you are taking the equivalent of 60 Edinburgh Napier credits or more over an academic year, you have the option to pay your fees through an agreed payment plan.
If you are studying less than 60 Edinburgh Napier credits, payment must be paid in full before study commences.
Tuition fees are subject to change and there may be an annual increase in the cost of tuition fees whilst you’re at Edinburgh Napier.
Edinburgh is one of the most exciting cities in the UK to both live and study.
Whether moving to Edinburgh for the first time, or moving out from home, you may be wondering about how to pay for your studies and general living costs.
Living costs will vary depending on individual budgets and lifestyles. We recommend you try and create a monthly budget to work out how much money you'll need, particularly taking into consideration student loans.
The 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 undertake work placements or part-time work opportunities to support their studies and lifestyle. You can find out more information about such opportunities via our careers team.
