YASS - How to register

YASS registration for 2021-22 has now closed. If you have registered students for the programme and have a query, please email Scotland-YASS@open.ac.uk.

Funding for YASS courses in Scotland

YASS receives support from the Scottish Funding Council. This continues to allow us to offer fully funded places for pupils from local authority schools undertaking 10 and 30 credit modules.

A hand holding a pen on a sheet of paperAs part of the application process, we collect information from students about their nationality and residency in Scotland and use this to work out how much funding is required for their module.

With new guidance around residency and funding since Brexit, some students may be asked to provide further information. If co-ordinators, pupils or parents/carers/guardians have any questions about YASS funding, please contact the YASS team.

Independent schools should contact the YASS team to discuss payment methods.
