Support for international students

Thursday February 18th, 2021

Rules relaxed to help those needing financial support.

International students facing financial hardship as a result of COVID-19 can now access financial support from their college or university.

Ministers have extended the eligibility for overseas students at colleges and universities to access £22 million in Higher Education and £3 million in Further Education.

Around 50,000 international (including EU) students enrol at Scottish colleges or universities each year and they have less access to UK financial support than UK domiciled students.

The winter Covid funding for further and higher education, announced at the end of January, is available for all students facing hardship.
