So you're a full-time student!

Undergraduate

This section gives information about the arrangements for students studying an eligible full-time undergraduate course in session 2016-2017. You should read the Young student section if:

  • You are under 25 before the start of the academic year we are assessing you for
  • You do not have a child of any age dependent on you at the start of the academic year we are assessing you for
  • You have not supported yourself from earnings or benefits outside full-time education for any three years before the first day of the first academic year of your course.
  • You are not married, in a civil partnership or living with a partner before the first day of the first academic year of your course. We will review this if your circumstances change during your course.

If any of the above statements do not apply to you, you should go to the Independent student area.

Further information is available on being assessed as a young or independent student.

EU (non UK) nationals studying in Scotland should select the EU Nationals option.
