Scottish students pay extra

13th December 2002 at 00:00
Students in Scotland are less likely to be put off university by top-up tuition fees than those elsewhere in the UK. According to a nationwide MORI poll for UNITE, which provides accommodation services for students and others, nearly three-quarters of all students say they might not opt for their first-choice university if it charged top-up fees, while 65 per cent of Scottish students said this would not or probably would not make much difference.

The variation may be accounted for by the fact that students elsewhere in the UK still have up-front tuition fees, which have been abolished in Scotland, and have been more exposed to a raging debate on additional fees.
