You may be eligible to receive a (repayable) tuition fee loan which only has to be repaid after you finish your studies and earn a salary in excess of £21,000p/a (subject to terms and conditions).
Living cost loans (Maintenance Loans) are available to contribute towards the cost of accommodation, food and travel. What you receive depends on your personal circumstances.
up to £6,820
If you’re a full-time student, you may qualify for a non repayable living cost grant, called a Maintenance Grant. The amount of Maintenance Grant that you may be entitled to depends on your household income and can affect the amount of Maintenance Loan that you receive.
New students entering university in 2015/16 are eligible for:
You become liable to repay in the April after you leave your course, but you only have to repay if you earn over £21,000. Your monthly repayment will be based on what you earn, not how much you borrowed.
You’re charged interest on your loan from the time you get your first payment in university until you pay your loan back in full.
You repay your loans back at a rate of nine per cent of your income over £21,000. So if your salary is £25,000 a year, you pay nine per cent of £4,000, which is £30 a month.
Information regarding funding for Scottish students starting university in 2015/16 is available on the Student Awards Agency for Scotland's website.
