Scholarships and Fees


Details of our tuition fees, as well as the scholarships and funding available to help you pursue your ambitions.

Edinburgh Futures Institute tuition fees

Since online and on-campus students study together, and we want to provide flexibility to move from on-campus to online study, you will pay the same rate whether you choose to study online or on-campus.

Students studying on a part-time basis will pay pro rata over multiple years. It is possible that the University will apply an inflationary increase in future years.
