Tories Confirm Their Plan to End Free Education in Scotland

Unfunded Colleges Commitment Leaves Students in the Dark

Commenting on confirmation from the Scottish Tories today (Sunday) that they would end free higher education in Scotland, George Adam MSP – Member of the Education and Culture Committee of the Scottish Parliament - said:

“This announcement from Ruth Davidson confirms that a vote for the Tories in May is a vote to end free higher education in Scotland.

“The Tories claim that their colleges policy will be funded ‘in its entirety’ by a graduate contribution – but without any detail about how much students would be expected to pay, or exactly when they would have to start paying it, their colleges policy has absolutely no credibility.

“It is also completely unacceptable to leave young people considering going to university in the dark about what it will cost them.

“The Tories have taken a wrecking ball to higher education in England - as long as there is an SNP government in Scotland, education will never become the market-driven, wealth-determined lottery it has become south of the border.

“With Labour all over the place on university tuition fees, and the Lib Dems almost wiped out because of their broken promises to students - it is clear that only a vote for the SNP in May’s election can safeguard Scotland’s proud tradition of free higher education.”
