No, don't worry, I haven't got the wrong topic.
I am an English student looking at applying to 1 or 2 Scottish universities for Engineering for 2015 entry. As far as I believe, I would currently be taking out a student loan with Student Finance England in order to cover the costs.
However if Scotland were to gain independence, what would happen with my loan?
Would it still continue as it were assuming the university fees did not go above 9000?
This is quite important to me, as I do not want to be finding myself in 2 years with no funding =(
What would happen with Scottish independance? Watch

We don't have guidelines in place for this yet. However, when applying to Student Finance England, you usually keep the rules which were in place at the beginning of your course through to the end. For instance if £9000 is the max fee, then this would not ordinarily be allowed to increase. People who are still studying just now who started before 2012 are still paying the old fees before they were increased.
