Funding for Higher Education

If you are a single parent studying, or considering studying, a course of higher education (HNC, HND, degree, etc) our advice guide gives a brief overview of financial and other help you may be entitled to.

Note: This is meant as a guide only. There are exceptions to the basic entitlements given here so always check with the Student Award Agency for Scotland (SAAS), or with a student financial adviser at the university or college, before committing yourself.

Students studying health related courses are funded differently. Seek advice from SAAS.
