Eligibility for Scottish fees
My Son was born in England 1998, we moved to Scotland in 2006, he his currently studying Highers at a Scottish boarding school. My husband and I are about to move to abroad for a three year work placement. My son will stay on in school next year to complete Advanced Highers. Will he be entitled to a free university place in Scotland? (We don't own a property in Scotland, we have always lived in MOD married quarters).
Fees are based on residency. If he has been living in Scotland for three years prior to attending university in Scotland he will be entitled to the Scottish fees system and will be treated as a Scotish student.
