20 Nursing Review Led by Scottish Government Health Directorate Student concerns about increased cost of living Review due to be completed this summer Objectives include taking account of other student funding packages Any changes no earlier than Stakeholders NUS, UCAS, NHS Education Scotland, SG, SAAS.

21 Postgraduate Eligible Scottish domiciled and EU Postgraduate students on designated postgraduate diploma courses are entitled to a non-means tested tuition fee loan of up to 3,400. From postgraduate students on eligible courses will, (in addition to the tuition fee loan) be able to apply for a non-means tested living cost loan of up to 4,500 a year.

22 Postgraduate In academic year the Scottish Funding Council introduced 850 fully funded Postgraduate places per year from until Students undertaking the MSc in Educational Psychology can access tuition and living cost loans for both years of their course.

23 Postgraduate In November 2014, a review of the barriers to Scottish domiciled students undertaking postgraduate study was announced. The group first met in February 2015 and a final report will be produced by summer 2015.

24 Part-time Fee Grant (PTFG) PTFG supports low income learners, whose individual income is less than 25k p/a by providing a non-repayable grant for tuition fee costs. Students must complete between SCQF credits per year (or 120 at non-campus based universities). Qualifications included in the PTFG scheme include part-time Higher Education course, (including the PGDE), SVQ3 and SVQ4, Professional Development Award (PDA) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) at levels 7-10 of the Scottish Qualifications Framework (SCQF)

25 Part-time Fee Grant (PTFG) The level of grant available is linked to the number of credits studied and is calculated pro-rata based on the maximum fee level set for full time courses (i.e. 1,820 for 120 credits). Early 2015 review of operation of PTFG Concerns raised by Open University

26 Widening access The Government s ambition is that every child whatever their background should have not just a better chance but an equal chance of attending university. The Programme for Government 2014/15 announced: the introduction of a target for participation in higher education; setting up a Commission on Widening Access to advise on meaningful targets, milestones and activities to accelerate progress; and providing 2 million in 2015/16 to double the funding available for local widening access initiatives through the Scottish Funding Council s Impact for Access Fund. This new funding is open to all higher education institutions and collaboration and multi-agency approaches will be encouraged. The Commission is due to meet for the first time in April 2015 and will run for one year.
