What would happen to Rest of UK students if Scotland gained independence? Watch
But without the sunshine.
Would they try to assure that Scottish independence wouldn't impact these students in any way?
It is worth saying that tuition fee entitlement is based on residency though. I myself am born in Scotland but when looking at studying it turned out i had to be resident for 3 years prior to receive the discount. Whether that remains or not would depend whether the agreement was bi-lateral or through ERASMUS (assuming we remain partnered post-Brexit). I suspect the former since it would make UK universities more money.
In terms of equal treatment, it's utterly absurd that students from any part of the EU other than England, Wales and Northern Ireland get into universities in Scotland under the same conditions as students domiciled in Scotland. That being said, the student finance situation in the rest of the UK is generally (considerably) better than what Scottish students get.
