    SAAS Scheme

    The SAAS scheme offers postgraduate student allowances for study
    • Scottish residents covering of fees (and possibly some maintenance costs)
    • non-British European Union citizens covering fees
    SAAS award recipients will need to pay the difference between the actual fee rate and the SAAS funded fees from their own means.

    Eligible persons should apply to the following address

    for the SAAS guide to postgraduate student allowances to determine their eligibility, level of support and other relevant issues.

    We have been given a quota of awards for each of our PG diploma courses recognised by the PG student allowance scheme. After students have checked that they are eligible, they should contact us affirming that they are eligible and have an unconditional offer of a place on a postgraduate diploma course and ask to be considered for support. We will choose among eligible prospective PG diploma applicants whom to sponsor and inform them and the SAAS. Such persons will fill in the application form for postgraduate student allowances (SAS 7) obtainable at the SAAS web site and return the completed application form to the SAAS together with an unconditional offer letter from us of a place on one of the following postgraduate diploma courses:

    British applicants, not resident in Scotland or who have only been resident there primarily for the purposes of study, should apply to their home LEA for an application form and their guide to postgraduate student allowances, and then apply directly to their LEA supporting their application with our offer of a place on an approved postgraduate course.
