Whether it is a school for your children or a college or university for the adults in your family, selecting an education provider may be one of your most important choices when you leave the Services.  It may even influence where you decide to live.

Education and training funding for veterans

You can get help paying for qualifications whether you:

  • are planning on leaving the armed forces

  • have already left and want to know more about your options

SAAS grants

The Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) gives financial support to eligible students doing a course of higher education in the UK. If you've been in the armed forces or are the family member of someone in the armed forces who has been living abroad you may be elligible for a SAAS grant. This depends on where you or your family member was a resident when they joined up.

Contact SAAS on 0300 555 0505 to find out if you're eligible.

Enhanced Learning Credit (ELC) scheme

The Armed Forces ELC scheme allows you to apply for money to pay for qualifications. You can apply whether you're still serving in the armed forces or you've already left.

Find out more about which qualifications you can get and how to apply.



Scotland has a tremendous variety of education providers and we think we have listed most of them, from state and private schools to colleges to universities.  We have left out Primary schools deliberately.
