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.

Register for your modules and apply for Part-Time Fee Grant: 

Part-Time Fee grant applications for courses starting in October 2023 are now open. You need to register for your modules and submit your Part-Time Fee Grant application to Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) by 7 September 2023. (If you registered for your modules before 3 April then you will now need to submit your Part-Time Fee Grant application to SAAS). We recommend completing your Part-time Fee Grant application as soon as possible.

Details on how to register your place and a step-by-step guide to applying to SAAS for a Part-Time Fee Grant are at

For postgraduate study tuition fee loans are available.
