I have been given a place on a Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing at the College of Animal Welfare in Edinburgh. Now SAAS have told me that due to this being classed as less than a HNC they don't fund it. I have been approved for my tuition fees through 24+ Advanced Learning Loan (i am a mature student) as the main office of my college is based in England.
The problem I am having is I can't find any funding for my living costs. I have asked my bosses if they would help me out with this, currently working in vet practice and will be doing part time hours until course finished but this wont cover expenditure with house bills, travel, food etc. They have sadly told me they wont be able to help.
Can anyone please tell me of any funding available to help with this as otherwise will need to give up my place on the course
Thanks in advance

You may be entitled to receive payment from the Loan Bursary Fund - further information on this can be found at:
Other than this source of funding, we would be unable to advise you of any alternative funding options. We certainly recommend you speak to the College of Animal Welfare to check if you would qualify for any additional funding they provide.
We wish you the best of luck in your future studies.
