Tuition Fees

University education is an investment in your future. It helps to increase your career potential and in turn your earning potential will benefit. When choosing university, it's a great idea to find out about all of the support on offer to you. From tuition fees to living costs, at GCU there is a range of bursaries and scholarships on offer each year.

How much do I pay?

Scottish domiciled students

Scottish students may not have to pay tuition fees if eligible for funding. Eligible students must apply each year through the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS). To find out if you are eligible contact SAAS or the GCU Funding Team in the first instance.

Students from the rest of the UK

Annual tuition fees are £7,000 for GCU students from England, Wales or Northern Ireland (RUK) and a maximum fee of £25,000 is set for any honours degree completed in three or four years. Students with suitable A levels are encouraged to enter year 2 of their programme.

The following advice and guidance can help you identify your permanent residence and related fee status:

Scholarship and bursary support

GCU offers scholarship and bursary schemes to help undergraduate RUK students with the cost of tuition fees. These range from a merit based scholarship to the Principal’s Common Good Scholarship for low income students who are first in their families to go to University.

Students from Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man

Students from Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man can apply to the Island Authorities for financial assistance.  Where eligible, tuition fees will be paid direct to the University on the student’s behalf.

We recommend that students intending to apply to their Island Authority do so prior to Registration each academic year. Students will be issued with an award letter confirming their financial assistance and this letter should be retained.
