Should you have any further queries regarding the content of this email, please contact Fees Section by emailing tuitionfees@stir.ac.uk.

Student Loans

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

Please note that 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 semester as long as you have completed enrolment 3-4 working days prior to this. If you enrol after the start of semester then they will usually pay your loan into your bank account within 3-4 working days of your enrolment. You must have completed online Administrative Enrolment and be in attendance for any payment to be made. New students should enrol online and collect your ID card which will trigger your confirmation of attendance at the University. Continuing students are advised to ensure they complete online enrolment in order for attendance to be confirmed and the SLC payments to be released.
