Discretionary Funds provide non-repayable assistance for students in financial difficulties in order for them to access and/or continue in education.
After accepting a place on your course, you will be sent a link to set up an account to apply for funding.
FE students will need to submit a Bursary application before they can make an application to the Discretionary Fund. HE students should first apply to SAAS for their fees, Bursary and Student Loan – and then complete a Discretionary Fund application. HE students will need to provide evidence that they have applied for the maximum Bursary/Student Loan available.
