SAAS Postgraduate Loans

The Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) has a postgraduate loan scheme to assist students pursuing a Masters at the University of Stirling during 2019/20. The loan scheme offers postgraduate students repayable support towards the cost of tuition fees and living costs.


The loans are available to eligible Scottish and EU-domiciled students undertaking full-time and part-time postgraduate study.

Go to the SAAS website for more information on eligibility and availability.

Tuition fee loan

You can apply for a loan to pay your tuition fees of up to £5,500 (£2,750 if you're studying part-time). This loan only covers tuition fees, and loan payment for tuition fees will be made directly to the University of Stirling by the SAAS on your behalf.

If the postgraduate course you're studying costs more than the £5,500 (or £2,750 part-time), you'll need to ensure that you are able to pay the difference yourself.

Living-cost loan

Eligible postgraduate students can apply for up to £4,500 for a living-cost loan. This is available for full-time students only.

Disabled Students' Allowance

Extra help may be available if you incur additional costs over the course of your postgraduate studies because of a disability or learning difficulty. Learn more about Disabled Students' Allowance.

How to apply

Eligible students should apply via the SAAS website.
