If you are already in receipt of a grant
Students who are currently in receipt of a student grant and who are progressing to the next year of the same course will continue to be assessed and paid by their existing awarding authorities - i.e. the relevant local authority or Vocational Educational Committee. If you are changing your course or progressing to a new course you will need to apply to the SUSI online system.
We wish you every success in your studies!
