HC Deb 13 April 1976 vol 909 c477W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many of the students following full-time courses at Scottish universities come from outside Scotland; from what countries they come; and what percentage each country of origin constitutes of the total.

Mr. Millan

The latest figures available are the provisional figures for 1974–75, when there were 39,750 full-time students in the Scottish universities, of whom 6,222—15.7 per cent.—came from elsewhere in the United Kingdom and 3,295—8.3 per cent.—came from overseas. Information about the country of origin of overseas students is not immediately available.
