Further Education

If you're a further education student, living and studying in Scotland, you may get funding to help with your studies. 

The funding covers your tuition fees, living, travel and study expenses.

The amount you receive can be based on your:

  • eligibility as a Scottish or EU student
  • course
  • household income
  • personal circumstances

You don’t need to pay these funds back.

Most funding awards are means-tested, and your household income may affect the funding you receive

Tuition Fees

If you're an eligible full-time Scottish or European Union (EU) student, you don’t normally have to pay tuition fees. If you would like more information about Fees please email our Finance Team at

Other funding options

There are also other allowances available based on your circumstances.
