Student Funding – Scotland
If you are a full time student you will not have to pay fees as long as you meet certain residency conditions. If you are not sure whether you meet these conditions, you should check with your course provider.
You might also be able to receive a bursary to help with living costs, a dependent’s allowance and help with childcare costs. What you get will depend on your age, family circumstances and income.
Most students studying part-time and on distance learning courses will have to pay tuition fees. However, if you receive certain benefits, are on a low income or are disabled you may be eligible for free tuition.
