Scholarship is extended

Have your say

THE Saltire Scholarship scheme, which offers international students a £2000 fee waiver, is being extended to cover a wider range of qualifications and courses.

The Scottish Government has opened applications across undergraduate, Masters and PhD courses. Previously, only those studying for a Masters-level qualification could apply.

Education Secretary Mike Russell said: “I am confident this will build on the strengths of the scheme and help ensure both Scottish and international students continue to benefit.”
