Q: Will there be scholarship support available to EU students?

A: The RCS Trust currently disburses more than £1.3million to incoming and continuing undergraduate, postgraduate and research students from Scotland, the rest of the UK, and international (including EU students) on the basis of merit and/or financial need. You can find more details on the Scholarship section of the website.

In addition, the Scottish Government in July 2020 committed to exploring a scholarship programme specifically to support European students to study in Scotland. We will share further details as soon they become available.


Q: I’m an EU student currently studying at RCS. Does this impact on me?

A: No. EU students who have already started their studies, or who start this autumn (academic year 20/21), will not be affected and will still be eligible for tuition fee support the entirety of their course.
