International deposits

International deposits

International students, who are not studying via distance learning mode, are required to pay a £3,500 deposit. This secures your place on your chosen course and also enables the university to issue your CAS statement, which is a crucial part of any visa application to study in Scotland.

If you hold a conditional and/or unconditional offer you can pay your deposit. Your deposit will be refunded if you do not meet your offer conditions or are not successful in obtaining your visa. 

Deposits can be paid online or by bank transfer. The quickest and easiest method is online

Pay your deposit by the dates below to ensure you have enough time to apply for any visa you should require. You may also be eligible for an early payment discount by meeting the following deadlines.

Deposit deadlines for international applicants:

  • 1 August for Trimester A (September) starts
  • 1 December for Trimester B (January) starts
  • 1 March for Trimester C (May) starts

Once a deposit payment has been made, we will be in touch within two working days to notify you of any remaining documentation required for your CAS to be issued. Please note; we often require financial and immigration documentation in order to help ensure that your visa application will be successful once a CAS is issued.
