    Do you think that Scottish Universities will be letting more students from outside of Scotland into their Universities to recieve more money?

    no, because the main point in letting Scottish students have no tuition fees is to encourage them to continue their education.

    it just means that the students that they do let in from England/Wales/N. Ireland will be paying a wee bonus to the universities

    Incorrect. The Scottish Government is kind enough to fund Scottish students actually. Scottish students have to apply to pay fees, even though their fees are paid for them by SAAS/the devolved Gov.

    Unfortunately, the state simply can't afford it without finding money somewhere. Isn't it fun to note that Scotland, with its 'free education' has had a drop in applications of 17.1% whilst the comparative figures are only 12.9% across the UK.

    Whilst the policy may have an ostensible purpose, it's a crap policy - so I wouldn't expect them to necessarily keep to the original principles of the measure.
