Getting Your Funding Sorted

It’s important to know about the different types of funding support available to you whilst studying at Fife College.

You should apply for the relevant funding as soon as the funding process is open, to ensure it is in place for the start of your course. You will be notified via email when funding for the academic year becomes available.

All funding will depend on the level of course you are studying and your own personal circumstances. Most students will be eligible for some form of assistance to help with the cost of studying. This may include living costs, travel expenses, course materials and childcare fees.

If you are a Scottish student attending a further education college in Scotland, you usually don’t pay fees. In addition, you may also receive help with the cost of studying, including living and travel costs and childcare. What you’re entitled to will depend on:

  • Where you live, i.e. your nationality and residency status.
  • Your course, e.g. above or below HNC level, full or part-time.
  • Your age.
  • Your personal circumstances, e.g. your income or parents’ income, marital status, number of dependents.

The rules of the Scottish Funding Council state that a student is eligible for no more than 3 years funding in any six-year period. Any previous full time funded study will be taken into account, unless the student studied under the age of 18, if this is the case then all previous funding is disregarded.
