Funding for EU Students

EU students studying at undergraduate level at UWS may be entitled to various funds and support towards tuition fees and living costs.

The Scottish Government has confirmed that EU students, studying full time for their first degree and enrolling in the 2018/19 and 2019/20 academic sessions, will be eligible to have their tuition fees paid by the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) for their full period of study.

Eligible EU students admitted to UWS will retain their Scottish/EU fee status for the full duration of their studies, and are entitled for full tuition fee support from SAAS.

Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS)

If you are an EU national coming to study full-time in Scotland, you may be eligible for funding from the SAAS. Funding for eligible EU students is restricted to tuition fees only. You cannot apply for any further bursaries or loans through the Scottish Government so it is important that you have enough funding to meet the cost of living in Scotland.

To qualify for support you must meet the residence criteria and be undertaking an eligible course of higher education and plan to graduate in Scotland. SAAS will not fund your studies if you are studying in Scotland for one year as part of your course at your home institution, to which you will transfer credits, return to and graduate from.

You must not already have a degree for which you received support from your home country, another EU member state or the European Social Fund.

Further information on eligibility and the application process can be found on the SAAS website.

Erasmus+

If you are coming to UWS as part of the ERASMUS+ programme, you should maintain any entitlement to student support you have through your home institution/country. You are unable to claim funding through the Scottish Government.

If you have any questions, you should seek advice about funding through your home institution.

Childcare

While the University can accept applications from all students for help meeting the cost of childcare, as an international student you will be unable to claim any further funding, such as discretionary or hardship funds, to help meet your living costs. You should therefore ensure you carefully consider the financial implications of study and take the time to plan ahead appropriately.
