Do you know you can get funding towards your programme fees as well as a money to help with your living costs;

Postgraduate tuition fee loan

The funding available is a loan to help you pay all or some of your tuition fees up to a maximum of £5,500 for full-time courses. If you choose to take out a loan to pay all or some of the fees, you will do so on the same terms as a student loan for living costs. If you withdraw from your course, you may not be eligible for a loan to help with the cost of your fees. However, your university may still charge you fees for the time you have been on the course.

Postgraduate living cost loan

Eligible full-time postgraduate students can apply to us for a living-cost loan up to £4,500. To be eligible for the living-cost loan, in addition to meeting our eligibility conditions, you must:

  • be under 60 on the first day of the first academic year of your course (normally 1 August). If you change course and are aged 60 or over on the relevant date of your second course, you will not be entitled to a student loan for your second course.

You can find information about repaying your student loan here.

The living-cost loan is not available to part-time postgraduate students or EU nationals coming to Scotland to study.
