Funding your course

There are support options available to help with course fees and the cost of study depending on which type of study you are undertaking.

If applying for funding support from the Student Awards Agency for Scotland or your Local Education Authority, you need to apply before each year of study - not just the first year. If repeating a year or if you have previously completed a degree, you may not be eligible for the kind of fee support you once received.

You will also have to think about living and travel costs, books and socialising. 

For any international students facing unexpected financial problems as a result of COVID-19.

GCU has a small support fund to assist you in these unprecidented circumstances. Click on the below link to download the form. Please send all completed forms to
