Free tuition for EU students extended
Tuition fee support for EU students has been confirmed for academic year 2020/21.
The Scottish Government have confirmed that EU students commencing undergraduate studies at a Scottish university in the 2020/21 academic year will be charged the same tuition fees, and receive the same fee support, as Scottish students for the duration of their studies.
The move means that the vast majority of EU students will be guaranteed free tuition.
Having previously committed to continuing funding for 2019/20, the Scottish Government has confirmed that it will continue to financially support eligible EU students starting their studies in 2020/21.
The offer of tuition fee support will stand even if current legal obligations to EU students cease to apply when the UK exits the EU. Scotland is the first nation in the UK to offer this commitment.
