Strathclyde is well-recognised for its global outlook and the diverse, international make up of our student and staff communities.
You will be aware of the outcome of the referendum and the UK’s decision to leave the EU. Rest assured that nothing will change in the short term.
The formal consequences of this decision will be subject to a process of negotiation over several years with many opportunities for the University to influence key decisions. Throughout the transition, our focus will be on ensuring we continue to offer an environment that is international in outlook, well-funded, and an attractive destination for talented people from across Europe and beyond.
All of our students are very important to us and we look forward to welcoming many more from across the globe in the future.
We are working with the Scottish Government to protect the benefits of EU membership.
Tuition fees for EU undergraduates starting in 2020/2021
The Scottish Government has confirmed it will extend its guarantee around free tuition for EU undergraduate students joining Strathclyde in 2020/21.
EU students who meet the appropriate residence conditions in the EEA will be entitled to tuition fee support from the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS). This will apply to students for the duration of their studies.
If you’re thinking of applying for 2020 entry, please apply in the usual way for your course, and check the SAAS website for more information.
Tuition fees for EU postgraduates starting in 2020/2021
EU postgraduate students joining Strathclyde in 2020/21 will continue to be admitted as Scottish/EU fee status students. If you’re thinking of applying for 2020 entry, please apply in the usual way.
We're currently awaiting confirmation of the situation for postgraduate study commencing academic year 2021/22.
Future changes to tuition fees for EU undergraduates & postgraduates
Future changes to the fee status of EU students enrolling at Strathclyde will depend on the terms agreed following the UK's exit from the EU and would also require changes to existing UK and Scottish legislation.
We will keep you informed of further relevant developments.
