Eligibility and Funding

Advice on the eligibility criteria and how to apply for a fee waiver from a course in the Data Skills Workforce Development portfolio.


Through the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) Upskilling Fund, a number of fully-funded places are available at The University of Edinburgh on short, standalone courses from the Data Skills Workforce Development Training portfolio.  


Funded places are available to those who meet Scottish Funding Council (SFC) fee waiver criteria.  Note that places are limited and priority will be given to those who meet the criteria for SFC-funded places. Please note that full-time students are not eligible for funding.

You must meet at least one of the following criteria to be eligible for a free place as per SFC requirements:

  • living in Scotland or the rest of the EU (except England, Wales and Northern Ireland) for the last three years for reasons other than education
  • living in the rest of the UK and working for a Scottish employer (an employer which is based in or has a significant presence in Scotland)
