The funding you are entitled to is dependent on the level of course you are studying and the mode you attend college, either full-time or part-time. 

You can now apply for student funding online. Here is a video to show you how to activate your funding application.

Further Education (Non-Advanced) courses 

It is important you make sure that your finances are arranged before starting your course. 

Students can access a number of funds depending upon their age and status. We will provide confidential, impartial advice and help on funding matters. The funding you access will depend upon the course you choose but the most common funding sources are: 

  •  Bursaries 
  •  Educational Maintenance Allowance (EMA)

Funding is not guaranteed and requires each applicant to provide the required evidence to support the application. All funding allocations are based upon your personal circumstances. 

Once you have been made an offer of a place on a full-time Further Education course, you will be sent an activation email to allow you to apply for your Bursary/EMA funding online.

Applications will be available from April onward. Funds are limited and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. All funds are discretionary and awards are not guaranteed.

Full details of the Bursary Policy is available from the Scottish Funding Council.
