Hi,
I am a polish student studying IT in college at the moment (2nd year). In December, it will be 3 years since I live in England with my parents. My question is - if I would like to study in uni Scotland, will I be considered as UK or EU student? Thank you very much for all of the responses & help. Kevin

I'm assuming you have a Polish passport, not a UK one.

You will be classed as an EU student.

Don't most unis class both EU and UK students as "home" students, for financial reasons? So someone from the EU and UK should have the same tuition fees for example.

Yes this is exactly correct - so OP has nothing to worry about, regardless. He won't be classed as an international student.

So, in that case - will my tuition fees will be £9250 like for RUK student (I would move over to Scotland and live and study here permamently), £1850 like for EU student or free? That is the most important thing that I am really curious about. Thanks a lot for your responses.

I was not aware about university fees being cheaper in Scotland - I think you will be paying £1820 per year for tuition fees.

To classify as a Scottish student (i.e. to be eligible for free tuition fees) you must have lived in Scotland for at least 3 years prior to your degree, which you have not.

Max in Scotland is £1820. That should be the max for you as well.

That link provides an overview for students that are citizens of the EU, EEA and Swiss citizens.

From University of Edinburgh

Your tuition fee status may be:
  • Home-Scotland/EU (Scotland and European Union countries)
  • Home-RUK (England, Wales and Northern Ireland)
  • Overseas (the rest of the world)

Your tuition fee status is determined by:
  • your nationality
  • the country where you normally live - where you are 'ordinarily resident'.

Check out the SAAS website for eligibility, EU students pay Scottish tuition fees (around £1800) , rest-of-UK students (usually) pay UK fees in Scotland.
