Tuition fees for university

Last updated: 25 May 2017

What about Clearing?

Clearing is the system universities and colleges use to fill empty spaces on courses.

Clearing runs from July to September. This is after the June deadline for applying to the Students Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) for student funding.

If you're going through Clearing, you may or may not have applied for student funding already.

If you've already applied

You may have already applied for funding – perhaps for a course you didn't get into. You need to update your application details by logging into your SAAS online account. This should stop your funding from being delayed.

If you've not applied yet

You may not have applied for funding yet so your funding is likely to be delayed. Apply as soon as you can.
