Fees and funding

For students living in Scotland or the European Union, studying an undergraduate course (degree, HNC, HND) the following fees apply:

Degrees - BA (Hons), BSc (Hons), BEng (Hons)2018-2019
Full-time per year (120 credits) £1,820
Part-time (per 20 credit module) £215

Part-Time (per 40 hour module) £56.40

The above fees do not apply to specific courses such as European Computer Driving Licence. If you are enrolling for one of these courses you will be informed by your lecturer of what the course costs will be.

Before you enrol on a course of study you must be sure that your fees will be paid. Some students are sponsored by their employer or another agency. In other circumstances you should make an application to either Shetland Islands Council if your course is FE or the Students Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) if it is HE. You do not have to apply for a student loan or a full bursary award, including maintenance. However, if both you and the course of study are eligible for funding your fees will be paid directly to Shetland College UHI.

You should make a “fees only” application to avoid having to pay the fees yourself.

Further information on fees for Rest of UK and non-EU students can be found on the fees and funding section of the UHI website.

There are various funding options available.
