Scotland’s fantastic history includes its universities – with Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and St Andrews among the oldest in the UK. These and many more universities in Scotland offer some of the most incredible surroundings to study in.

Glasgow was named the UK’s top cultural and creative city (The Cultural and Creative Cities Monitor 2019 report), while millions descend on the Fringe Festival every summer.

Scottish students may not want to stray far from home – the government covers tuition fees for those studying their first undergraduate degree here.
