Does anyone know about how much a visa costs if I am a US citizen applying to study in Scotland in the fall?

Also does anyone know of any scholarship websites or funds to look at?

You can find the information in the website of the UK embassy in the US. Or else here :

I suppose you're likely to need the Tier 4 (General) therefore £298 (you'll have to pay the equivalent in usd)

Re visas -- you might want to check out this thread on TSR (Americans applying to universities in UK): http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...76912&page=208 (you can scroll forward or backward for tons of info on applying for visas etc.).

Also https://www.gov.uk/browse/visas-immigration/study-visas will outline costs, timeline etc. for applying for a visa (I wasn't sure if you were going for a semester or for your full 4-year degree). Assuming the latter, a Tier 4 visa runs about $500 (but that covers all 4 years).

My son is in his second year at a uni in Scotland. He loves it -- the global perspective of his studies, the people, travelling, etc. Feel free to message me.

Re scholarships -- some of the unis have scholarships for international students but they are very competitive. Your best bet might be to look at scholarships offered by local organizations in your community (ask your high school counselor). For us, the cost of attendance in the UK was about the same as our premier in-state uni, and a far cry less than some of the US schools he was accepted to (even with merit scholarships).

Good luck!

Oh alright, I guess I'll find out more from the school about it, but that's not as expensive as I thought it would be. Thanks!

Oh thank you for posting that thread!! I'll have to check it out!

I actually am transferring from an American unit so I only need it two years but I was worried it was going to be over $1000.

I'll have to message you and find out about traveling, I want to do a lot of it while I'm there! Gotta start saving up now!

I've been trying to look, but I am not in high school anymore and my study abroad office at my school only really helps find scholarships for outside programs (like two-month summer exhibitions traveling around) and I don't want to do those. And my school doesn't offer any scholarships for my course. I'm still looking online but it's hard to know which scholarships are real or a scam.
