UCU Scotland comment on university admission figures

4 August 2020 | last updated: 11 August 2020

Mary Senior, Scotland official, UCU, said: 'It's good news to see record numbers of Scottish students accepting places in Scottish universities despite the Coronavirus pandemic. Young people receiving their results today are to be congratulated.

'Given the uncertainty as to whether all these students will take up places in September, and if international students will be willing and able to come to study in Scotland, it is vital that we properly fund our universities.'
