Whatever your financial situation

It's important to know about the different types of funding support available to you whilst studying at college.

You should apply for the relevant funding as soon as you can to ensure this is in place for the start of your course.

This does not apply to School-College partnership courses including Foundation Apprenticeship programmes.

Full-time FE - Students with an offer for a full-time FE course for 20/21 should now have received details on how to access the online student funding form.  This is emailed directly from funding@forthvalley.ac.uk 

Full-time HE - Students with an offer for a full-time HE course for 20/21 had to apply for their funding from SAAS by Tuesday 30 June 2020 to ensure it would be in place for the start of the new academic session. Any HE students who have not already applied, please do so as soon as possible.   

Students wishing to apply should complete the Part-Time Fee Grant application form available on the SAAS website which is now an interactive version. This form should be emailed to PTFG@forthvalley.ac.uk.  You can access the form and further information at www.saas.gov.uk

If you have a funding query, please contact our funding team via email and include your Student ID number, if available.



Payments of student funds are tied to attendance. Download our Student Attendance and Absence Guide below for instructions on absences:
