Higher Education (HE)
 

SAAS (Students Award Agency for Scotland) is now open to apply for your tuition fees to be paid.  You can click on the link below or telephone the SAAS helpline on 0300 555 0505 for further information

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 induction. If you do not attend an induction for your course, you will not receive your first payment until you have attended your first class at Fife College. The College will then notify SAAS of your enrolment and this releases your first payment. Please note, this may take a few days after your induction or first class.
