Free university education for EU students studying in Scotland will be abolished after Brexit.
Holyrood College Minister Richard Lochhead said the government will end free education for EU citizens who will begin studying next year. The money saved will be used to encourage more Scottish students to go to university.
Students from EU countries – as is the case in Scotland – have been entitled to free tuition since the fees were abolished.
However, the Scottish government will no longer be obliged to cover the costs for students from EU countries after Brexit and has decided to bill them after that date.
Tuition fees in Scotland for overseas students are currently between £ 9,000 and over £ 31,000 per year.
