Undergraduate funding from SAAS
The Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) pays your funding directly to the University. You need to apply for funding for each year of your course.
How to apply for SAAS funding
Submit your SAAS application
You can apply for SAAS funding for the forthcoming academic year from April on (for example, you can apply in April 2023 for funding for the academic year 2023-24). You should apply for SAAS funding by 30 June to ensure that the funding is in place for the start of your programme.
Make sure that you tick the tuition fee box on the SAAS application form.
The University cannot apply for SAAS funding on your behalf.
SAAS will confirm the funding to you and the University. You do not need to send the award letter to the University.
Apply for funding on the SAAS website
Register how you will pay your tuition fees (if you have not done so)
This form gives you directions on how to pay your tuition fees and lets our team know how you intend to pay your fees. If you have not yet filled it out, you should do this now.
You will need to complete this form once at the start of every academic year, or whenever the way you fund your studies changes.
You do not need to complete this form if you have done so previously in the current academic year. Only complete it again if the way you fund your studies has changed.

Where to find your financial information
You can see your student fees account transactions like student and sponsor fee invoices, credit notes, payments received including scheduled instalment amounts and dates when you log into MyEd and go to My finance.
Do you need help?
You might receive an invoice if:
the award of the funding has not been confirmed by SAAS
the amount of funding is less than the fees due
If you believe you should have full funding then please contact SAAS first to find out more information before contacting the University.
If your funding does not cover the full tuition fees, you can pay the difference in one payment or by instalment.
How to pay for your part of the tuition fees in one payment
You should apply for funding as soon as possible. Check the SAAS website for application deadlines to ensure that your funding is in place for your programme start date.

If you have submitted a late application, you might have to fund your tuition fees in another way. If your fees are not paid you could risk your place on your programme.
How not paying your fees can affect your study, and the University’s collection policy
You might be able to get SAAS funding if you repeat a year.
