New student loans for taught postgraduate courses

The Scottish government has now introduced the new student loans for taught postgraduate courses up to Masters level, available from 2017-18 academic year. The maximum loan is £10,000, with up to £5,500 for tuition fees and £4500 for living costs, and there’s no limit on the funded places.

They are for UK students who meet the residency requirement (must have been resident in Scotland for 3 years, not including for periods of study). EU students will be able to apply for tuition fee loans from 2018 academic year. Applications open in April.

There’s more information now on the SAAS website
