student: hey government can I have some money to go to university
uk government: sure here you go. you'll have to pay it back but only when you're earning £21,000+ a year, and if you don't pay it off after 30 years we'll just write it off, don't worry about it man
scottish government: nah man just go to uni we ain't gonna charge you
us government: no. you gotta pay it yourself. upfront. your parents have to save up from the moment you're born. good luck, fucker.
although the scottish and english governments do act this way, i would just like to point out that the scottish government only offers free education to scottish people. those who aren't scottish but from the UK pay the same as they would do in england (etc) and those who come from overseas pay the same as they would have done in other UK countries.
at least i think that's right.
