IS THERE A COST? DO YOU HAVE TO PAY?
Most students who normally live in Scotland and study in Scotland do not have to pay fees for full-time courses. However, it is a requirement that you must apply to the relevant body to have your course fees waived or funded, otherwise you will have to pay the fees yourself.
If you are studying at a Full-Time Non Advanced level, which is generally Levels 1 to 6 on The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) and you meet the residency criteria below, the course fees are waived upon application to WCS Student Funding:
- People who were born in Scotland and have lived here all their lives
- People from England, Northern Ireland and Wales
- EU students with settled/pre settled status
- People with some types of leave to remain
If you are studying at a Full-Time Advanced level, generally Level 7 to 10 on The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF), you must apply to the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) to fund your course fees.
Full-Time Fees for 2022/23 are:
Non Advanced (NC) - £1,008
Advanced (HNC/D) - £1,285
