Higher education funding for international students
Undergraduate & postgraduate 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 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.

Care experienced students
Students who have been in care at any time may be eligible for a Care-experienced Bursary. The term 'care-experienced' refers to anyone who has experienced a certain form of care in their life (sometimes known as having been ‘looked after’).
We offer a variety of additional funding opportunities to encourage and support engaged students, passionate about their subject area, to maximise their potential and study at SRUC.
