Financial Aid for US Students

Financial Aid for US Students


The University of Aberdeen is recognised by the US Federal Government as one of the foreign institutions that US students can come to study at and use their financial aid in the form of a loan in the UK to cover the cost of studies.


Please note, this scholarship is only available for Aberdeen campus students.

The University of Aberdeen is certified as an eligible institution for Title IV Federal Government Loans and can certify Direct Sub/Unsub and PLUS Loans to cover the cost of attendance. We are also able to certify private (credit-based) loans for lenders who make loans available to US citizens studying a degree at a foreign school.
