Funding your studies can seem daunting but please don’t worry. The funding available to you is dependent on your SCQF level of study - whether you are studying at further education level (SCQF level 1 to 6) or higher education level (SCQF level 7 to 12). 

Students on some courses, such as health and social care, are required to apply for the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) membership scheme, which is managed and delivered by Disclosure Scotland. Find out more about the PVG scheme here.

Let us know about any additional support needs content

Let us know about any additional support needs

We recognise that all our students benefit from some kind of support, and that different people need to be supported in different ways. Our Inclusive Learning Team will support you to achieve your qualifications.

If you have a learning difficulty, disability, or a significant health or mental health issue, we encourage you to book a meeting with our  to discuss your support options ahead of starting your studies.

If you've had support at school or college before and you want this to continue, you'll need to let us know. You may also be exploring support for the first time and have lots of questions about what's on offer.

  • Supporting students with disabilities. If you need additional support because of a disability, contact our team to find out about the help we can offer. 
  • Study support. The Study Bar is here to help with skills like planning your work, researching, writing assignments, referencing and proofreading guidance. Get in touch.
  • Student mental health and wellbeing. Looking after your health and wellbeing will help you study better, and when you’re happy and full of energy you’ll have more fun, and make the most of your student experience with us. Get in touch.

Student services and support content

Student services and support

Our Student Services Centre is your one-stop shop to help guide you through your time with us, from that initial enquiry phone call through to registration, graduation and beyond. We aim to make your life easier, take away the potential minefield of queries, worries and concerns you may have, and give you all the support and advice you many need.

All further education students (SCQF Levels 1 to 6) are allocated a Learning Development Worker (LDW) who will talk you through your goals and clarify what you hope to achieve. Higher education students (SCQF Level 6 to 12) will have a Personal Academic Tutor (PAT). You’ll be able to talk to your LDW/PAT throughout your course and they’ll be the first person you can turn to if you have any personal or academic concerns.
