Sorry to correct you there, but Im actually pretty threaders with having to correct the same old chippish 'poor, persecuted English' bile and ignorance time after time after time after zzzzzzz. Still, a stoot hert tae a stae brae, and all that.As Smartascarrots never gets tired of posting but I'll do it again anyway: It's due to the way that the English chose to implement a parochial arrangement that means English students can only claim funds from their local LEA. Scottish (and indeed the rest of the EU) students are not so constrained.
That would probably be because its cost neutral for SAAS to pay up front for qualifying EU nationals because their governments will refund the costs back to SAAS afterwards whereas English LEAs wont the sponging bastards.They have even stated that anyone attending a Scottish education facility from Europe won't pay fees, with the exception of those from England. Hmmm.
To quote the late, great Spike Milligan, you must be feeling the wrong bits.It feels like we are being leeched off.
