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: For courses starting in October 2022, you need to reserve your place on your chosen qualification and submit your Part-Time Fee Grant application to Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) online by 8 September 2022.

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

For postgraduate study tuition fee loans are available.
