European students who travel to Scotland to study can still benefit from free tuition after the UK’s formal Brexit date.

The Scottish Government has announced that students from other European Union (EU) countries who start their course in the academic year 2019-20 will not be charged tuition fees.

Shirley-Anne Somerville, the higher education minister, said the move sent a “strong message” that EU citizens were “welcome” in Scotland.

Britain is scheduled to exit the EU in March 2019, two years after Theresa May sent the Article 50 letter.
