Scots study incentives

22nd January 2010 at 00:00

Labour higher education spokeswoman Claire Baker wants the Scottish Government to do more to encourage young Scots to study in their home country. There has been a 3 per cent increase in undergraduates at Scottish universities who hail from north of the border, finds the Higher Education Statistics Agency (up to 31,400 in 2008-09 from 30,490 a year previously). That compared to a 7.7 per cent rise in England's "domestic new entrants", 5.9 per cent in Wales, and no change in Northern Ireland. Labour is seeking an independent review of university funding and student support.
