Applying for funding and/or financial support

Funding for Full time Further Education courses starting in September 2019 are not yet available.

Once we have guidelines from Scottish Funding Council an application form will be sent to you if you have accepted your offer.

Funding for FE courses

If you have firmly accepted an offer for a further education course (i.e. Certificate, Intermediate Certificate, Advanced Certificate, National Certificate, and City & Guilds courses), we will send you a Student Funding Application Form by post.

Please take time to fill this in carefully and hand it in to our Student Funding team with all your supporting evidence.

Our Student Funding team will be available at each campus at certain times to check your forms and answer any funding queries.

Funding for HNCs, HNDs, and Degrees

If you are studying a Higher Education Course (i.e. HNC, HND or Degree), then you should apply to the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) for funding. Please visit the SAAS website or call their helpline on 0300 555 0505.

Funding for Childcare or Housing

If you are studying a Further Education course, you may also be eligible for support with travel.

If you require assistance towards rent or childcare expenses please apply to the College directly via the Student Funding Application Form which you will be able to pick up from any main campus reception.

You need to accept your unconditional offer of a place at Fife College before you can apply for funding for childcare, or rent/mortgage funding. 

Course fees

While all courses provided by Fife College attract a Tuition Fee, if you are applying for a Full-time Further Education course, most Scottish and European Union Students will not have to pay tuition fees.

However, for a Further Education course (i.e. Certificate, Intermediate Certificate, Advanced Certificate, National Certificate, and City & Guilds courses) you must apply to have your fees paid for you by completing a Student Funding Application Form. This form will be sent out to you once you have firmly accepted your offer.

The options available to you are dependent on the mode of attendance of the course (Full-time or Part-time) and the level of study, which is either.

Course Fees

For Part-Time Further Education courses, fees are payable in advance unless you have applied for and have been granted funding by another source or have applied and been awarded part-time fee waiver.

For a Higher Education course (i.e. an HNC, HND, or degree courses), fees are payable in advance unless you have applied to SAAS to have your fees fully or partly paid for you.

It is your responsibility to ensure that all required funding applications are completed fully and this will ensure that your fees will be paid where eligible.

You will be asked to bring confirmation of who will be paying your tuition fees with you to induction.

Any fees that remain outstanding are your responsibility.
