Fee move for non-Scots university students

Scottish universities will be able to charge annual fees of up to £9,000 for students coming to study from other parts of the UK, under new plans.

Mike Russell, the Scottish education secretary, outlined proposals in the Scottish Parliament to allow higher education institutions to set their own fees, which would be capped.

The move came after English universities got the go-ahead to charge up to £9,000 for tuition.

Residents of Scotland studying at home will not pay any fees.
