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

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.

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.
