UKCISA has had sight of a letter from the Scottish Government to College and University Principals in Scotland in which it states that it intends to provide eligibility for ‘home’ fees and Student Support in Scotland from the 2022/23 academic year for certain Afghan nationals and their family members who have been relocated to the UK and granted leave under the:
- Afghan Citizens Resettlement Scheme; or
- Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy Scheme.
We do not yet know the detail of the policy but we understand from the Scottish Government that it will be laying changes to the fees and Student Support regulations in due course. We will publish a further news story here when we know more details.
