  2. Part-time fee grant for non-UK EU citizens in Scotland

Part-time fee grant for non-UK EU citizens in Scotland

European Union flag

Following the vote for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, the Scottish Government announced that free tuition and associated support will continue for those non-UK EU citizens enrolled or preparing to study in Scotland.

The OU in Scotland has been in touch with the Scottish Government and has received confirmation that this announcement includes the part-time fee grant in the current application window, subject to the standard eligibility criteria.


A decision on whether to extend this to study in 2017 has yet to be made for any mode of study.
