Erasmus and International Exchange Fees

The following fees apply to outgoing University of Aberdeen students participating in the Erasmus+ or international exchange programme.

 Home and EU students

  • Study abroad through the Erasmus or international exchange programme, full or part academic year
    SAAS will pay the standard rate of £1820 for your off-campus study
  • Work abroad through the Erasmus programme (including industrial placement and language assistant posts), full academic year
    SAAS will pay a reduced rate of £910 (50% of the full-time rate) for your off-campus placement and the remaining 50% will be waived by the University
  • Work abroad through the Erasmus programme (including industrial placement and language assistant posts), part academic year
    SAAS will pay the standard rate of £1820 for your off-campus placement

Students with a repeat year of study will need to check whether SAAS are satisfied with progression and will pay the associated off-campus fees.  Otherwise you will be liable for payment.


International students

  • Study or work abroad through the Erasmus or international exchange programme, full academic year

You will not be charged tuition fees by University of Aberdeen for the year abroad. The International Undergraduate Scholarship year will be switched from the final year of study to the year abroad.  Tuition fees will therefore be charged in the final year. In instances where a student undertakes two full years abroad during the degree programme, the fee waiver will only apply to the first year spent abroad.

This applies to students studying or working abroad as part of a four year or five year degree programme.

This can affect eligibility for scholarships, please check with your provider.

  • Study or work abroad through the Erasmus or international exchange programme, part academic year

You will be charged full tuition fees for the year abroad as normal. The International Undergraduate Scholarship will apply to the final year of study.


RUK students admitted from 2012/13 onwards

  • Study or work abroad through the Erasmus or international exchange programme, full academic year

You will not be charged tuition fees by University of Aberdeen for the year abroad.  The fee-free year of the tuition fee cap will be switched from the final year to the year abroad. Tuition fees will therefore be charged in the final year. For example the cost of a four year degree including a year off-campus will be £27,000 and the cost of a five year degree including a year off-campus will be £36,000 (provided there is no period of repeat study). In instances where a student undertakes two full years abroad during the degree programme, the fee waiver will only apply to the first year spent abroad.

This applies to students studying or working abroad as part of a four year or five year degree programme.

This can affect eligibility for scholarships, please check with your provider.

  •  Study or work abroad through the Erasmus or international exchange programme, part academic year
