Because of the different way SAAS and Student Finance England (plus Student Finance Wales and the Education Authority Northern Ireland) calculate your household income figure, it is possible that Scottish students may initially be awarded a slightly lower bursary.

We want to compensate any student who has been affected by this and award any funds on which you may have initially missed out.

SFE deduct parents' or sponsors' pension contributions from their take-home pay amount to calculate the 'Household Income' figure.  SAAS do not make this deduction so a students whose parents earn the same amount and pay an equal level of pension contributions would be calculated as having a higher household income figure if they apply through SAAS than they would if they apply through SFE.  Scottish student's bursaries might therefore be slightly lower than the students from the rest of the UK or Europe.

As this is beyond the control of the University of Cambridge we need to award any lost bursary separately.
