Graduates must now make a contribution
Reform Scotland says fairness, and the survival of the sector, now demands change.
Reform Scotland, the independent, non-partisan think tank, says today that all graduates should in future be expected to contribute to the cost of their university education.
At present, only students from outside the EU and from England, Wales and Northern Ireland pay for tuition. Scottish students and those from EU member states pay nothing.
The think tank argues that the Coronavirus crisis has both exposed and exacerbated major financial turmoil in the university sector, and that a restructuring of the way universities generate income is required.
