Abertay University Funding
Money, Fees and Funding
If you are thinking about starting a course, and perhaps moving away from home for the first time, it’s a good idea to plan ahead and be aware of the costs involved before you begin your course at Abertay.
The Advisory Service provides a friendly and supportive environment where students can get up-to-date information, advice, guidance and support on a variety of issues pertinent to the student experience. We will also liaise with outside agencies on behalf of students in relation to individual queries, for example, Student Awards Agency for Scotland, Local Authorities (England & Wales), Library Boards (Northern Ireland) and the Student Loans Company.
We are here to help support you in your academic and professional development by providing advice, which is professional, caring, student-centred and accessible. If you are experiencing any difficulties, or you would like advice, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Funding your studies
Going to university is an investment in your future, so it’s important to plan ahead and be aware of the costs involved in advance. This information is provided as a brief introduction to what financial support is available. Further advice and guidance is available by contacting our Advisory Service.
The costs involved in attending university fall into two main areas – tuition fees and living costs.
Tuition fees and the types of financial support to help with living costs will vary depending on where you are from, whether you plan to study full or part time, and whether you are studying at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
All students studying at university are liable to pay tuition fees. The tuition fee you pay will depend on your fee status and the course you are studying. Generally, your fee status is the same as your current country of residence. However, not all cases are straightforward. We use the information you provide in your application to determine your fee status, and may ask you for additional information to ensure your fee status is correct.
