SAAS Funding 2017/18
It’s good to know that if you are considering applying to SBC over the summer that full-time students are eligible for a certain amount of funding from the Students Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS). If a student is successful in obtaining SAAS funding, SAAS will pay the College directly the sum of £1765 per annum, towards fees. For further information and to apply online go to the SAAS website – or if you have any questions then please email our bursar Joyce Holloway.
SAAS funding for 2017/18 is now open for applications for those who are returning students or those who have a confirmed place at SBC. The earlier you apply, the less stressful the process is and, if you apply by June 30th, the funding is guaranteed to be in place before you start in September! This year, in particular, early application is advised as SAAS has changed their accounts to improve student experience, but this means every applicant will also have to set up a new account. For more information download the SAAS Student Account Leaflet.
