Financial information

The table of fees shown below is an indication of the cost of living associated with each exchange partner. This varies depending on the destination as some of our exchange partners are in cities where the cost of living is greater than in others.


The University operates a helpful scheme whereby we will provide students with a cost of living loan, for the amount shown, at the start of their exchange period and the student repays this fee to the University in a number of instalments during the exchange period. The fees shown below cover room and board and reasonable personal expenses expected whilst on exchange. The cost does not include international travel, associated visa fees, insurance or vacation periods.

Student tuition fees must continue to be paid to the University of Stirling as usual and tuition fees are waived by the host university in return. It is important that you check with your fee authority to verify whether they will continue to pay fees for a study abroad year.
