Focus On: Funding

We are here to help with all funding enquiries!

Funding applications are now open!

Funding applictions for non-advanced courses (SCQF level 6 or below) at NESCol are now open. If you have applied for one and received either a conditional offer or a full offer, you can now apply for your funding.

Access the funding application portal.

You should have received an email with a link to apply (if this has not arrived in your inbox, please check your junk mail box). Alternatively, click the link above.

  • New to NESCol? If you have never applied to the College for funding before, you will need to activate your account first
  • Returning to NESCol? If you have received funding from us before, you just need to log on to your account

To help you complete your application, please refer to our guide.

Please note, funding applications for HNC or HND courses should be made directly to SAAS. Find out more about funding for advanced courses.
