Influx of students from rest of UK to Scotland unlikely, study says

An independent Scotland within the EU could no longer charge English, Welsh and Northern Irish students tuition fees, according to experts questioned in a survey.

However, concern about an influx of students from England choosing free education in Scotland to avoid paying fees at home is unfounded, the study suggests.

Researchers investigating attitudes to tuition fee policies in Scotland and England say that the impact on cross-border student flows is likely to be relatively small in the short term.
