    scottish uni courses are designed so that you go to them with highers (roughly AS) and not advanced highers (roughly A level), so you go after 5th year (year 11 I think)
    Year 12

    almost nobody actually does that though, and just go after staying on for 6th year at high school, normally with a couple of advanced highers.
    People do leave after S5, but it's definitely not the norm since a lot of people want to re-sit a Higher or pick up more.

    Not if you've done three A-levels or three Advanced Highers. Also, check it's available for your course first.
    So this is only the case with some subjects not all

    Yup, ranges slightly between institutions though. Did you check your own course though in case it does?

    Postgrad isn't involved in any of this, so in other words - hasn't changed. Your dual nationality is irrelevant, where you've lived for the past three years is though but for postgrad you'll probably pay the same regardless whether you live in Northern or Southern Ireland anyway. Phone/Email uni for confirmation but maybe someone else on here might be more certain about this.

    you're pretty much spot on. Fees are the same for home or EU students, so doesn't matter whether brownrob lived in Ireland or Northern Ireland. Fees for postgrad courses are likely to increase though, every uni can set postgrad fees however much they like.

    When it comes to applying for a funded PhD, where he lived may however become important as some (PhD) funding is only available to UK residents, e.g. EU students get the tuition fee but the full stipend is only available for home students.

    Well i was wondering are home-eu applicant with the new fees going to be less competitive because they pay less money than Ruk ones to the uni?
    What are you talking about? I hardly understand a word you're saying, also which new fees are you referring to in this context?
