Part-time fee grant


The Part-time Fee Grant, available from SAAS, gives help each year towards the cost of your tuition fees. The level of tuition fee SAAS will pay will depend on the number of credits you do and the qualification you are studying.

The maximum fee grant awarded is:

  • £1,805 for publicly funded degree level courses
  • £1,820 for eligible 120 credit university courses which are not campus based
  • £1,274 for publicly funded Higher National awards (HNC, HND)
  • £1,195 for all courses at private providers

You can find the application form and guidance notes for applying via the SAAS website, you can also use their Part-time Funding Guide fee calculator to work out how much fee grant SAAS will pay.

Please do not use the calculator if you are studying 120 credits of a degree level course at a non-campus based university. You will be eligible to apply for the full £1820 Part-time Fee Grant.

If you withdraw from your course, you may not be eligible for a fee grant.

Disabled Students' Allowance

Extra help may be available to you if you incur extra costs while you study because of a disability or learning difficulty. Further information on the type of funding available and eligibility criteria is available.

If you are applying for DSA for the first time or if your disability has changed significantly since you last applied, we will want you to have a needs assessment carried out. More information on how to apply and a list of assessment centres.
