Student support policies
Support for Asylum Seekers in Further & Higher Education
The leaflet, Support for Asylum Seekers in Further and Higher Education [PDF], is for asylum seekers living in Scotland who are undertaking or thinking about undertaking a further or higher education course at college or university and explains the funding that is available from the Scottish Government and colleges and universities.
Prince’s Trust Team Programme - Credit Guidance
SFC has been working with The Prince’s Trust to clarify the position on their ‘Team Programme’ activity in relation to SFC’s new credit model. Guidance is available from SFC Credit Guidance - The Princes Trust Team Programme [PDF].
Current position on Princes Trust Courses and student support funding
If the college is claiming credits for a Princes Trust Course then any students attending this course can be assessed for bursary funds.
This includes bursary funds for care-experienced students also taking into account what is the best option for the student as set out in the bursary guidance.
However, if the college is not claiming credits for the course then the student cannot be assessed for student support funds.
Helping you meet the costs of learning and training
The Scottish Government's Helping you meet the costs of learning and training gives an overview of the funding available for anyone thinking about learning. It is also a useful guide for practitioners to help them give advice.
