Continuing into Higher Education

There are many sources of financial support for students, or those thinking about studying at conservatoire or university level.

The Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS)is an agency of the Scottish Government who give financial support to any eligible full and part-time undergraduate or postgraduate student who is doing a course of higher education in the UK.

They also award support for Disabled Student Allowance, the NHS Bursary Scheme and the Part-time Fee Grant. Their website provides information on all types of student funding available and allows you to apply for your financial support. You can find out more about external sources of funding here.

Throughout your time as a Transitions student, we will invite representatives from SAAS to attend information events where you will be able to ask questions and find out more.
