Indeed, EU nationals are more than welcome in Scotland since it voted very strongly to remain in the EU. On 24 March, Scotland's Deputy First Minister announced that EU nationals choosing to study in Scotland and enrolling in 2018-19 have been guaranteed free tuition for the duration of their entire programme.
