Fees, Funding, bursaries and loans explained

There are three main sections of SAAS and Student Loan funding and how they are paid. You will receive a SAAS Award letter on your account, this letter details your tuition fees and bursary, including how much student loan you will receive. You will then receive a separate payment schedule from the Student Loan company detailing your loan payments. Please send these to us as soon as you receive them to organise your payment schedule.

Please do not hesitate to contact the admissions team for assistance and for any questions you may have. If you are applying for SAAS funding, you will receive a ‘SAAS Guidance’ email, detailing the application process. This includes some useful links to assist you in your application, as well as advice on what additional funding you may be eligible for dependent on your circumstances.

If you would like any assistance with your SAAS application please contact Steph 07547 793 563 via call, email, text or Whatsapp

How do I qualify for funding?

1. Studying our HNC Fashion Makeup Course or HND Makeup Artistry Course. 2. Ordinarily resident in Scotland on the first day of the first academic year of the course


Your bursary is paid in monthly instalments, you do not have to pay this back unless you leave the course prematurely. If you do leave before gaining your qualification, you may have to pay back a percentage of your bursary. This is dependent on how far into the course you are and how much bursary you have received. For example, if you completed 50% of the course but received 60% of your bursary, you would have to pay back the remaining 10%.

This is paid in monthly instalments, however you do have to pay this back. Below you will find an income threshold, if your annual income is below this amount you will not be required to make any repayments. Student loans from SLC do not require a credit check. As of April 2021, the threshold for repayments has been raised to £25,000 per annum (before deductions). Student Loans Company will expect you to repay 9% of your annual income if you earn over £25,000 per year. This amount can change with inflation, and a different limit may apply if you move to live outside of the UK.
