asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the amount of the grant awarded to a Scottish medical student who elects to attend Trinity College, Dublin; and whether this is the same as the amount granted to a Scottish medical student attending a provincial English university.

Scottish students attending Trinity College, Dublin, are paid, in addition to fees, the same standard maintenance allowance as those at Scottish universities living in lodgings. The maximum is £245 per annum, subject to the usual parental means test. The allowance payable to Scottish students at English provincial universities and living in lodgings is £265.
