Additional fee information

International Applicants: When you are thinking about studying overseas, it is important that you understand all the costs involved and budget accordingly. It is essential to budget for your studies prior to leaving your home country, and arrange all your funding for BOTH your tuition fees and your living costs. Rest of UK (RUK) Applicants: Tuition fees for entry in September 2020 at the University of Aberdeen, for students domiciled in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are £9,250 per annum, but the University has capped this so that no student will pay more than £27,750 in total for their three or four year Honours degree, or £37,000 for a five year Honours degree (with the exception of Medicine).
