I thought it was living there for 3 year but I'm not completely sure. I suspect the differential between fees payable between England Scotland and wales may change and poss disappear in the future as governments realise that it is another source of income.

Don't get me started LLL. In Scotland everyone including EU members are entitled to free tuition except if you are English! :x Being Scottish I know what the motives are for this. :evil: I believe your DC would have to reside in Scotland for 3 years before being eligible for free tuition although you have to pay for some courses i.e. Medicine.

I think they should let you through on "accent" Tipsy :wink: .

Good point Herman, it might well all change anyway.

I wonder if going to school at Fettes counts as living in Scotland :? ?

I don't know if its parents residence or childs in which case you are at boarding school more weeks of the year than home. I'm sure there's some way to work the system! :wink: I want to move back to Edinburgh so you can come and live with me - look out Kosar, Trouble's coming to your town! :shock: :lol:

My family originate from Edinburgh (more specifically, Leith).

If my granddaddy hadn't moved down here we'd still be there, except I wouldn't be me. :shock:

OK,I'm going now :lol: :lol: :lol:

I think it is about where you pay your taxes to....so presumably where the parents live. I'm pretty fed up about it too, being Scottish and my children born there. Although if you look closely, the fees are a bit cheaper, but you have to do 4 years for an Honours degree, so its swings and roundabouts, I guess.
Also the students seem to be a bit younger. My son looked at a Uni in Scotland, but felt a bit out of place due to his advanced years (18 and 1/2) compared with 16 - 17 year olds. Grandma would have loved him to go though, she might have seen a bit more of him then, and he could have stayed with her, freeing up some of his student loans, hmmm, maybe we've missed a trick or two :lol:

My sister went to, arguably, the best uni in Scoltand after doing her highers (AS level equivalent) and she said the first year was a repeat of the work done at school so if A'levels are higher then there may be a couple of years twidiling your thumbs. Of course the upside is they could get their binge drinking and partying out of their system by the end of Year 2 and still cope academically! :lol:

When Mr Yoyo went to Edinburgh uni with A levels (from Norn Iron) he was given the choice of starting in the second year.He chose to start in forst year, mainly because of an extra year of boozing etc.........!
