When you are considering starting college, one of the most important issues to consider is funding and how you intend to pay for some of the costs that come with being a student.
You need to have a think about
You will need to consider two things, how you will pay for your tuition fees (course cost) and how you will pay for your other living costs including travel, food, and accommodation.
Immediately after you have applied for a course, start looking at your options and speak to our Student Services team. It is important that you have arranged funding before starting a course at the College.
Our advisors are happy to discuss your individual circumstances, help you with a financial “health check” and budgeting advice and to advise you on how to apply for funds.
Your funding and whether you pay home or international tuition fees will depend on the type, of course, you apply for, your nationality and UK immigration status, where you live and your residence history for the last 3 years, your age, and personal circumstances.
If you are considering applying to enrol your child at The Waterfront Nursery – Edinburgh College’s own purpose-built nursery based at Granton campus – find out how the process works with our Student Guide to The Waterfront Nursery
. Places are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
