It's a good idea to have your tuition fee loans, cost of living support loans and other finances in place BEFORE you start your course.
Students from Scotland - apply to the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) to have your tuition fees paid direct to the institution, and a student loan for living costs, plus any supplementary grants. Apply to SAAS by 30th June 2013 to guarantee that your funding will be able to be released when you matriculate in September. Check out this How to applyYouTube video for further information.
Students from the rest of the UK - apply to your Local Education Authority or Education and Library Board for a tuition fee loan and living cost support.
Students from the EU - apply to SAAS to have your tuition fees paid to the University. If you have lived in the UK, or have immediate family living or working in the UK, you should contact our Student Funding Officer to discuss your case as you might be able to gain additional funding.

Non-EU students - you will not be entitled to assistance with tuition fees or living costs and are expected to have arranged sufficient funding before starting your degree. This is a compulsory element of obtaining a visa.
Postgraduate funding is only available if you can meet the residence criteria and if you have received an unconditional offer from the University.
Taught postgraduate courses have Tuition Fee places funded by the Student Awards Agency for Scotland via a Tuition Fee Loan. See the SAAS website for the list of eligible courses. You need to apply for your Tuition Fee Loan via SAAS. You can download the application form from their web-pages.
Primary and Secondary Teaching diploma courses are funded in the same way as undergraduate courses and attract student loan support.
If you are considering research-based postgraduate courses, speak to the academic department concerned.
