Fees and funding

Fees

Fees for all courses must be paid in full on enrolment. We accept cheques and card payments (Visa and Mastercard).

Please note: we can only accept one form of payment per course booking.  For example, if a course is £100, the full payment needs to be made in the form of a cheque OR a card payment and not a combination of the two.

Funding

Part-time Fee Grant (SAAS:Student Awards Agency for Scotland)

If you plan to study CertHE courses totalling 30 credits or more in year 2019-20, you may be eligible to apply for the part-time fee grant (PTFG) which can contribute towards course fees.

Students in receipt of certain state benefits or those who are  earning £25,000 or less per year including any private and state pensions may be eligible. 

To download an application pack with completion guidelines please visit the Student Awards Agency for Scotland(SAAS) website or Tel: 0300 300 3137.

If you are considering using SAAS funding, please read the following points carefully:

  • A new process has been put in place that will affect the way we enrol students using PTFGs. View information on the PTFG process
  • It is important that you apply for funding for all your courses at the same time because if you add further modules during the year you will not receive any SAAS funding and you will need to fund them yourself.
  • Part-time fee grant will not cover the full cost of your course. View the PTFG award calculator
  • If you withdraw from some of your courses and the total amount of credit you are taking is less than 30 credits you will no longer be eligible for a Part Time Fee Grant and will need to fund the courses you have taken yourself
  • The grant does not cover material and/or field course costs.
