Applications 2020

What funding and financial support will be in place?

Students on Higher Education courses should apply to SAAS to cover their tuition fees and be assessed for student support in the form of a loan and bursary. It is vital that students apply for funding as soon as possible. 

Students on a Further Education course may apply for Bursary/EMA funding and you should have received a link to our website to allow you to apply. 

When will my funding start?

Bursary maintenance awards will be assessed from the course start date and will continue based on your engagement and progress on the course. Travel awards will be assessed when you are required to attend the college as part of your course. Course expenses are paid across to your faculty to purchase essential items such as textbooks and these will be supplied when they are required as part of your course.

Can I apply for childcare funding?

The childcare funding application is available on the funding website. Awards are offered for registered childcare and covers timetabled classes only. The college operates a nursery at our Anniesland and Cardonald campus which will be open at the start of the new term.

I have completed my form but I am not sure how to upload documents?

It is important that you provide all required documents to support your application. The list of documents required is created depending on your answers to the questions in the form. You can upload evidence either by scanning the document or taking a picture with a camera, smart phone or a tablet. Our youtube video might help you:

I have applied for funding and not had an award yet?

Staff are working through the forms as quickly as they can to make maintenance awards to students. If you have fully completed your application and provided all required documents, you will receive an award email. You can log into your application at any time to check its progress.

How do I contact Student Funding

Staff are working from home and can be contacted on email at or phone us on 0141 272 3670. The department is particularly busy at this time of year, please be patient and we will reply to your enquiries as quickly as we can. 

I've got an offer of a place, when will I receive confirmation of my place?

If you have an Unconditional offer, you will receive details about how to enrol online as soon as this process is ready to start (from July onwards). If you have a Conditional offer, you should inform the college as soon as you have evidence to meet these conditions. If you are unsure about your place or have not heard anything about your application, please contact the Admissions team at

If you have a specific question about your offer please contact the relevant Curriculum email address that sent you details.

I've applied but haven't had an interview or offer yet?

Teaching staff are on holiday until Monday 10 August and we will be in touch as soon as possible after that date.

When will my course start?

Full time courses are scheduled to begin teaching on Monday 7 September 2020 – which is two weeks later than originally planned. Some courses may start earlier or later depending on specific circumstances. As part of a phased start to the academic year college induction activities will begin online from Monday 24 August and each student will be contacted with details of their own course arrangements.

When can I access College buildings?

The College campuses are not open to students or members of the public at present.  We are continuing to follow the most up-to-date guidance from the Scottish Government and will provide an update on access to buildings as soon as the guidance allows.  Any specific questions should be directed to or the appropriate Faculty.

What will be the arrangements for enrolment?

An online enrolment process will be implemented from July for new and returning students. Once you accept an Unconditional offer you will receive further details about how to enrol. There may also be safe face-to-face enrolment required for specific courses – where necessary you will be informed of this process.

What are the arrangements for induction?

We plan to start college wide induction activities from Monday 24 August. Induction will be different but really important this year – with more online resources and activities. This experience aims to introducing you to the college, outlining student support and funding details, helping you to use Canvas (the college’s Virtual Learning Environment), describing how to work best online and allowing you to speak to key staff with any concerns or questions you may have about your course.  We will offer you the chance to update some of the skills we think you will need to work on a blended basis.  You will receive further details directly confirming the induction programme.
