You can get a loan if you’re studying at a rate of at least 25% of an equivalent full-time course and if you’re a Home or EU student.
It can take up to six weeks to process student finance applications. Make sure you apply early – even if you have a conditional offer – as you can amend or cancel your application if your plans change.
Apply to the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) – although you can apply to the SAAS to cover your full tuition in Scotland, you may also get other support for living costs, or for tuition fees elsewhere in the UK. If you're planning on starting a course in 2015 you can apply to SAAS from early April.
If you're planning on starting a course in 2015 you apply now to Student Finance Wales – wherever you study in the UK you can get support from the Welsh Government – get a £3,575 Tuition Fee Loan and they'll cover the rest of your fees with a Tuition Fee grant of up to £5,425.
