If you start a full-time or part-time master’s course in Scotland and you are Scottish domiciled, you can apply for a Postgraduate Loan from SAAS for eligible courses. You’ll be able to borrow up to £10,000 in total to pay your fees and help with living costs.  SAAS will only fund a course elsewhere in the UK if it’s not available in Scotland.

Only EU nationals who are ‘settled’ or ‘pre-settled’ in the UK will remain eligible to apply for home tuition fees providing they meet the residency conditions.  Some EEA and Swiss nationals will be eligible if they meet residency conditions.

Irish nationals who are living in the Common Travel Area of the UK, Islands or Ireland and are starting a course of study in Scotland in session 2021-2022 will be entitled to apply to SAAS for funding.  The funding available depends on your residence eligibility
