Student loans

Useful financial guidance is available on the Scottish Government's student information website.

A delay in enrolling could lead to a delay in the receipt of your student loan payment.

Once enrolment is fully completed notification of attendance is sent electronically to the Student Loans Company each day at 3:00pm.

The Student Loans Company will usually pay your loan into your bank account by electronic cash transfer (BACS) on the first day of the semester, as long as you have completed enrolment 3-4 working days prior to this. If you enrol after the start of the semester then they will usually pay your loan into your bank account within 3-4 working days of your enrolment. You must have completed the online administrative enrolment and be in attendance for any payment to be made.

If you are a new student, you should enrol online and collect your ID card, which will trigger your confirmation of attendance at the University.

If you are a continuing student, you should ensure you complete your online enrolment so that your attendance can be confirmed and the SLC payments can be released.

Sponsor form

To notify the University of who is paying your fees you must complete the online sponsor form.

Your sponsor will then be invoiced in due course. There may be a delay of 24 hours (or longer at the weekend) to update the supplied information and you will not be able to continue with Online Enrolment until these updates have been completed.
