Studying In Scotland/UK

    I'm looking into going back to college to study pharmacy and as I have already completed a BBS in Business degree I am not entitled to "free fees" here. I have been told by some though that Irish passport holders are entitled to free tuition in Scotland. Can anyone clarify if this is true?

    Also, I was wondering can the UK system of student loans apply to Irish students wishing to study over there?

    Thanks in advance

    EU students can get free tuition in Scotland, yes, but only if it's your first degree.

    You must be resident in Scotland for 3 years to apply to their student loan system.
