If you are a student who normally lives in England, you are likely to have a fee status of 'Rest of the UK (England, Wales, Norther Ireland)'. This means you may be eligible to apply for support and funding to help you cover the costs of university.
As a student at the University of St Andrews you will be expected to pay fees every year that you are in attendance. Fees may increase annually during the course of your study. The amount you will have to pay depends upon the degree you are studying for and your fee status.
Tuition fees for 2018-2019 will be £9,250. This will apply to RUK students enrolling on a full-time undergraduate programme in 2018-2019. Applicants who, following the receipt of their offer defer entry to the following year, may be required to pay a fee subject to an inflationary increase.
You may be eligible to have the full cost of your tuition fees covered by a Tuition Fee Loan provided you are a full-time student, domiciled in England, and you are taking your first degree. The Tuition Fee Loan is offered by Student Finance England, is non-means tested, and paid directly to the institution by the Student Loans Company. Details on how and when to apply are available from Student Finance England.
Your fee status will determine the level of tuition fees you will have to pay. You should query your fee status with us if you are unsure which fee category will apply to you.
If you wish to query your fee status, you must do this prior to receiving a decision on your application. Acceptance of an offer constitutes acceptance of the conditions outlined in the offer, including fee status. You may request a review of your fee status by printing and completing the fee status classification questionnaire (PDF) and returning it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information regarding fee status can be found on the UKCISA website. UKCISA is the UK's national advisory body serving the interests of students and those who work with them.

You may also apply for a maintenance loan up to the maximum of £5,555.
