Would helped if said which course you where doing.
This is from saas site on issues raised .



Tuition fees
Tuition fee eligibility
If you meet our residence eligibility conditions, you are entitled to apply for help with your tuition fees, regardless of your age. However, if you have done a course of higher education before, we may not be able to pay your tuition fees or give you a loan to pay your tuition fees (whichever applies).

Your application for help with your tuition fees is only valid for one academic session, so you must make sure you apply each year. If you forget to apply to us to have your tuition fees paid, your college or university will send you a bill for them.

We can only consider an application for tuition fees if we receive it before the closing dates, as shown in the applying for funding section.

Tuition fees if you study in Scotland
The standard rate of tuition fees your college or university will charge depends on what course you are doing as shown below:

HNC, HND or equivalent − £1,285
degree or PGDE − £1,820
HNC, HND or degree at a designated private college or university − £1,205
Tuition fees if you study at a UK college or university outside Scotland that gets public funds
You will have to pay up to £9,250 each year towards your tuition fees if you study at a publicly funded college or university in the UK (but not Scotland). Most will charge this but some may charge less.

You should contact the college or university you want to study at to find out what tuition fees they charge.

You can choose to take out a student loan to pay all or some of your tuition fees. The amount of loan you can get does not depend on your own income or that of your parents, step-parents, parent’s partner or your spouse, civil partner or partner, as appropriate.

If you are eligible to apply for a loan to pay your tuition fees, and your course starts in the autumn term, you must apply for this before 31 March 2022.

Tuition fees if you repeat a period of study
If you need to repeat a period of study, we may pay your tuition fees or give you a loan to pay your tuition fees during this time. This will depend on the funding you have already received.

Tuition fees ‘cut-off’ date
We pay tuition fees direct to your college or university, if you are eligible and are attending your course on a specific date. We refer to this as the tuition fee cut-off date.

We will not pay tuition fees for you if you withdraw before the cut-off date, however your institution may still charge you tuition fees, and you will be liable to meet this cost. Each college/university will have their own policy, and you should contact your college/university for advice.

The cut-off dates for session 2021-2022 are as follows:

1 December 2021 for courses which start between 1 August 2021 and 31 December 2021
1 March 2021 for courses which start between 1 January 2021 and 31 March 2021
1 June 2021 for courses which start between 1 April 2021 and 30 June 2021
If you transfer to another course, college or university, we will pay your tuition fees or give you a loan to pay your tuition fees for the course, college or university you are attending on the cut-off date. If your college or university charges a higher rate of tuition fee for your new course, we will not pay the difference.

Tuition fees that are different from the standard rate
Sometimes a college or university may charge tuition fees that are different from the standard rates.

For example, students studying:

at Scottish Baptist College are entitled to a tuition fee amount of £1765 as a result of a historical agreement predating the Scottish Parliament
an accelerated degree course at a publicly funded provider in the Rest of the UK (not in Scotland) are entitled to a tuition fee loan of up to £11,000
an accelerated degree course at a privately funded provider in the Rest of the UK (not in Scotland) are entitled to a tuition fee loan of up to £7,400
If you are not sure about the tuition fees that your college or university will charge, you should check with them before you accept the place they have offered you.

Tuition fees for a private college or university
The tuition fees for a private college or university that does not get public funds are generally more than the normal amounts we pay. You will have to pay the difference if your college or university charges you more.

If the private college or university is in Scotland, we will pay fees of £1,205 in session 2021-2022.

If the private college or university is in the UK but outside Scotland, you can apply to us for a non-income assessed loan of up to £6,165 to help towards the cost of your tuition fees.

Tuition fees for students from abroad
A college or university can charge a different amount of tuition fee to people they consider to be ‘overseas’ students.

They may class you as an overseas student if you are a UK national who has been living outside the EEA or Switzerland for a number of years, or you are a non-EU national who lives in the UK. Tuition fee assessment is not based on nationality only.

They look at your place of ordinary residence during the three-year period before the relevant date and your immigration or asylum status in the UK.

Tuition fees for courses with placements (sandwich courses)
If your course involves a compulsory sandwich placement (work-experience placement) in the current academic session, the help we can give you with your tuition fees will depend on whether your placement lasts for the full year or part of a year.

If you are on a placement for part of the year and studying at your home university for the rest of the year, the highest tuition fee we can pay, or the highest amount of loan we can give you to pay your tuition fees, is the standard rate of tuition fee for the level of course you are doing.

If you are on a placement for the full year, we will pay, or give you a loan to pay, 50% of the standard tuition fee for the level of course you are doing. Depending on the course and whether your university is in Scotland or elsewhere in the UK, this could be anything from £640 up to £4,625.

This is a contribution towards the cost the university has to pay for administration and any other arrangements relating to the placement. You should ask your university whether they want you to pay the balance up to the standard tuition fee amount.

Tuition fees for courses intended for graduate entry
If you already have a degree, regardless of whether you received public funds for this, you will not normally be able to apply for help with your tuition fees for a degree specifically designed for people who already have a degree or an equivalent qualification.

Tuition fees for studying abroad
If your course involves a compulsory year of study abroad, or you choose to study abroad for a year, we will pay, or give you a loan to pay, 50% of the standard tuition fee for the course you are doing (the year abroad must not be part of a student exchange).

Depending on the course and whether your university is in Scotland or the rest of the UK, this could be anything from £640 up to £4,625. This is a contribution towards the cost the university has to pay for administration and any other arrangements relating to your study abroad. You should ask your home university whether they want you to pay the balance up to the standard tuition fee amount.

If you choose to study abroad for a year as part of a student exchange, and your home university is in Scotland, we will pay the full standard tuition fee straight to your home university.

If the university is elsewhere in the UK, and you’re on an ERASMUS exchange, you can ask us for a loan to pay 15% of your tuition fee costs. Please speak to your ERASMUS co-ordinator at your university who can give you further information about the remainder of your tuition fee costs. If you’re on a non-ERASMUS exchange, you can ask us for a loan to pay all or part of your fees up to £9,250

If you study abroad for part of the year and are studying at your home university for the rest of the year, the highest tuition fee we can pay, or the highest amount of loan we can give you to pay your tuition fee, is the standard rate for the level of course you are doing
