Student loans

If you are a SAAS-funded student, you can find up-to-date information about student finance in Scotland on the Student Information Scotland website:

Student Information Scotland website

If you are eligible for a student loan, SAAS or your local student finance body will send the information needed to the Student Loans Company (SLC).

SAAS-funded students are paid monthly. You will be sent a payment schedule letter telling you the date and amount of each instalment.

Working part-time

Working while studying is a great way to earn a little extra money, learn new skills and take time out of University to meet others. However you should only take on work that will not interfere with your academic priorities. 

Advice about combining part-time work and study

It may be challenging to find part-time work, especially for a short period of time. The Careers Service regularly advertise hundreds of part-time jobs throughout the year.

International students

Most international students who are studying in the UK for a year or more are eligible to work part-time. You may have restrictions on how much work you can do; you should check your visa to see what your individual situation is.

The  Student Immigration Service offers clear and detailed advice on working during your studies, including information about:

  • the type of work Tier 4 visa holders are allowed to do, and not allowed to do
  • the number of hours Tier 4 visa holders can work
