Some, together with the University of Strathclyde, the University of Glasgow and Glasgow Caledonian University, have already dropped the charges and it’s hoped that others will do the identical.
The movement, introduced ahead by SNP college students and members of the Scottish parliament (MSPs) from Holyrood’s Education Committee, said that obligatory charges for commencement runs opposite to the precept of free greater schooling in Scotland. SNP MSP Rona Mackay mentioned that college students within the nation shouldn’t be constrained by their private funds. “A student’s graduation is one of the most important days of their life as they rightly celebrate years of hard work – this shouldn’t come at a cost.”
