When you are considering starting college, one of the most important issues to consider is funding and how you intend to pay for some of the costs that come with being a student.
You need to have a think about
You will need to consider two things, how you will pay for your tuition fees (course cost) and how you will pay for your other living costs including travel, food and accommodation.
Immediately after you have applied for a course, start looking at your options and speak to our Student Services team. It is important that you have arranged funding before starting a course at the College.
Our advisors are happy to discuss your individual circumstances, help you with a financial “health check” and budgeting advice and to advise you on how to apply for funds.
Your funding will depend on the type of course you apply for, your age and personal circumstances.
For further information regarding funding you may be eligible to receive, please Download our Funding Information Booklet
and Funding Quick Guides.
EU Students and the EU Referendum
Further to the UK’s decision to leave the EU and the triggering of Article 50, the Scottish Government confirmed in March 2017 that "EU nationals choosing to study in Scotland and enrolling in 2018-19 have been guaranteed free tuition for the duration of their entire course". For students starting a course in 2017/2018, SAAS in Scotland has confirmed that eligible EU students will continue to have course fee support. It is not currently known what the impact of the decision to leave the EU will have to UK law and policy on Further and Higher Education Fees after 2018/2019.
