Students from Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland

Applicable to undergraduate study

If you live in Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales, you will need to apply to your regional finance team for your funding. The below information is a guide to the 'non-repayable' support you can expect to receive in addition to any loans which may also be available. To be considered for these grants you will need to be 'income assessed' in order to demonstrate your household income (HHI). For full details on available support, please check the website of your regional finance team, as listed below.

Scotland

Students should apply for support through the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS). The rates quoted here are for 'dependent' students (under 25). If you're over 25 or 'independent', then you'll get a much smaller bursary rate and a higher loan. All students are eligible for a tuition fee loan of £9,000. At time of going to print, 15/16 support levels were still to be confirmed.
