Man writing in a book

If you’re studying at least 30 credits at undergraduate level and your personal income is £25,000 or less (including replacement living-cost benefits), you may be eligible for a Part-Time Fee Grant, which will cover the cost of your course fees.

Reserve your place, then apply for Part-Time Fee Grant: If you’re planning to start studying in October 2021, you need to reserve your place on your chosen qualification and submit your Part-Time Fee Grant application before 9 September 2021. 

Details on how to reserve your place and a step-by-step guide to applying for Part-Time Fee Grant are at http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/apply/scotland-grant-apply 

Please note that we are now not able to process any paper-based application forms, so all applications need to be made online. We appreciate your patience during this time.
