UIN 54204, tabled on 3 June 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland, what discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Education on the effect of limits to the number of English students who can study at Scottish universities from 2020 on the higher education sector.

The number controls that we have introduced will allow for similar levels of recruitment to last year with room for up to 6.5% growth. Accordingly, this will not reduce the number of students normally domiciled in England who come to study in Scotland.
