      The tuition fees depend on the Uni and the degree, and on where you are from (for example, Scottish students can study for free in Scotland for their first degree).
      In England I think undergraduate degrees last 3 years, in Scotland they last 4 years.

      For example, In Edinburgh Uni undergraduate degrees cost about £9,000 per year, and last 4 years.

      In the UK, university fees are about £9000 a year for 3 or 4 years depending on the course. Most people take tuition fee student loans to pay for these, which they only pay back after they have graduated and are earning above a threshold.

      This is for UK students (although different in Scotland), and things are different if you foreign.

      It will depend on the university and where you live. In England it is about £9k per year, so £27k in total for the three years. If you are Scottish and go to a Uni in Scotland, there are no fees. If you decide to study abroad it will depend on the country. Most universities have clear information about fees on their web pages.

      As the others said at the moment university fees are £9,000 for a 3-4 year course. You typically get student loan to cover this and will pay it back gradually once you earn over a certain threshold.
