Part-Time Fee Grant for Academic Year 2023/24

SAAS part-time fee grant

If your personal earned or pension income is under £25,000 and you are taking at least 30 credits in the academic year 2023-2024, then you can apply for the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) part-time fee grant.

If you wish to apply for a Part-Time Fee Grant, you can do so by creating an account with SAAS and applying to them directly. Further information about this process is available on the SAAS webpage. Please note that the closing date for part-time fee grant applications from learners studying part-time between 1 August 2023 and 31 March 2024 is 31 March 2024.

Students are required to provide evidence of income to be sent to SAAS with the application.  Please ensure that your application is submitted within six months of the start of your course. However, we would strongly encourage you to apply before you commence your studies or asap thereafter.

Please note that there are limitations on funding when increasing the number of credits studying throughout the year.  If you are considering taking additional credits once you have commenced your studies, before you do please contact the Lifelong Learning or Money Adviser, Student Services to discuss the financial implications.
