Have you had an offer from College? Are you going to be studying a Higher Education course (i.e. HNC, HND or Degree)? Remember to apply for student funding through SAAS!

SAAS Applications are now open for courses starting in August 2017.

To apply for SAAS (Students Award Agency for Scotland) funding for your tuition fees to be paid, visit the SAAS website- www.saas.gov.uk ​

Students should complete and submit a SAAS application as soon as possible to ensure the necessary funding is in place for the start of the course. Please note, you do not need to have a confirmed place on your course to apply.

SAAS online applications

If you are applying online for SAAS funding, you will be asked for certain information during the application. Have a look at our SAAS online application checklist to see what you will need.

Your First SAAS Payment

If you have been awarded support from SAAS, please note that you will not receive your first payment until you have attended your first timetable class. The College will then notify SAAS of your enrolment and this releases your first payment. Please note, this takes a few days after your first class.​
