International students

To be eligible to apply for support (tuition fees, student loan, bursary and living costs grants), you must be ordinarily resident in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man for the three years immediately before the relevant date (the first day of the first academic year of the course). If you fall short of this period, even by one day, you will not be eligible to apply for support under the normal residence conditions.

We will not treat you as being ordinarily resident in Scotland if your main purpose in coming here has been to receive full time education, because you would otherwise be living elsewhere.

EU students

Only EU nationals who are 'settled' or 'pre-settled' in the UK will remain eligible to apply for home tuition fees. Other EU nationals and associated groups are not eligible to apply to SAAS or a college bursary for tuition fee support and therefore will be charged the international rate for tuition fees by SRUC.
