So you living and reside in England and you want to attend a university in Scotland.

So basically you'll have to apply for your university fees and loans that you are wanting through student finance England as you are living in England permanently.
Contact student finance England and get them to sort everything out for you.
You could contact SAAS and ask them for advice on this matter and see what happens from there.

Normally SAAS won't approve anything from any Non Scottish residents for university courses fee's etc.

Who is eligible? In general, to be eligible for home fee status and student support, including free tuition, student loans, bursaries, and grants, students must have a 'relevant connection' with Scotland. This means they must be 'settled' in the UK and 'ordinarily resident' in Scotland on the 'relevant date'.25 May 2023

Eligibility for home fee status and student support in Scotland




Am I eligible for Scottish University fees?
To receive funding, you must meet all the following three conditions: UK national or have 'settled status', with no restrictions on how long you can stay. Normally live in Scotland on course start date, short periods away for work, education or holidays are OK. Living in the UK for 3 years before the course start date.

Can I study in Scotland if I live in England.
Students from England, Northern Ireland and Wales studying in Scotland are able to apply for living cost grants and student loans from their home funding body, and will receive the same level of funding from these sources as they would if studying away from home in their home country.

Don't know if any of the above information will be useful for you.


Best thing to do is really contact the SAAS first and foremost and see what they say about it.
Then if necessary you can always get in touch with Student finance England.

Yeah I'm bit confused about it too but like I said best contacting SAAS and see if they will do this.
