Need a little extra? We also offer fair and competitive loans that suit your needs and don’t cost the earth. Unlike traditional banks and high street lenders, our set interest rates mean you get the exact same deal as everyone else, no matter your credit score.
First Scottish University Credit Union is designed to help you manage your money in a way that benefits you first and foremost. Our only shareholders are our members and every penny we receive is used to improve the products and services we provide – our goal is to encourage healthier financial habits that are guaranteed to safeguard your future.
Saving money directly from my pay helps me manage my money in alternative way to a traditional bank. There is also the ability to borrow money with ethical advice about repayment and at favourable rates. It has helped my family save for holidays and other expenses. The App allows access to your savings when you need them and the staff are all friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend the Credit Union to my colleagues
"I love the Credit Union and cannot think of a better way to save and borrow at the same time. We have had many happy holidays and wouldn’t have been able to visit Jamaica six times without their help!"
"Having the funds taken off of your salary means that you never miss a payment. I use the Credit Union mainly for our holidays but many a time over the years, having access to savings have meant that emergency jobs or big household purchases have been easy to achieve."
"I'm delighted with the service they supply, they are always very helpful and they are very responsive, I will be using them for a long time to come."
