To ask the Scottish Government what information it has on the latest available figures for tuition fees for a first full-time degree in (a) Scotland, (b) England and (c) Wales.

Answered by: Richard Lochhead 25 March 2019

Eligible students studying their first full-time degree in Scotland would not be expected to pay any tuition fees, due to the Scottish Government’s commitment to paying the tuition of qualifying first full-time undergraduates.

Students studying in England for their first full-time degrees would be expected to pay tuition fees of up to £9,250 per year.

Students studying in Wales for their first full-time degrees would be expected to pay tuition fees of up to £9,000 per year.
