Applying for your Part-Time Fee Grant

69 per cent of our students receive a Part-Time Fee Grant

If you’re studying at least 30 credits at undergraduate level and your personal income is £25,000 or less (including replacement living-cost benefits), you may be eligible for a Part-Time Fee Grant, which will cover the cost of your course fees.

Register for your modules and apply for Part-Time Fee Grant: 

Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) is now open for Part-Time Fee Grant applications for the 2024/2025 academic year - for modules starting between 1 August 2024 and 31 July 2025 -  which can be done via the SAAS website.

(If you are still to apply for a Part-Time Fee Grant for the 2023/2024 academic year - for modules starting before 31 July 2024 - please contact SAAS who will advise you how to apply, as you will not be able to do so via their website.)

Further details on how to register for your modules, and a step-by-step guide to applying to SAAS for a Part-Time Fee Grant are at

For postgraduate study tuition fee loans are available.
