Despite criticism from opposition parties, this change has failed to excite much interest in the media or wider civil society. NUS Scotland has welcomed the new approach to student support, of which these reductions are only one part, as "a huge step forward". Tuition, of course, remains free.

Student grants, however, do not. This is about to have important consequences for students from homes with the lowest incomes, who as Sheila Riddell showed last week already constitute a declining proportion of our students compared to a decade ago. The changes to grants will also have a striking effect on comparisons between Scotland and other parts of the UK. The state supports first time students in full time higher education for their living costs in two ways. Non repayable grants, now known as bursaries, are only available to those from lower income homes. Student loans are available in greater or lesser amounts to all students and provide up front cash at the expense of future earnings: repayments are collected later as a percentage of income, functioning while they last like an extra tax.

For students from households with incomes of less than 17,000, the total package will now be worth 7,250. Together with free tuition, extra spending power for students has been critical to the NUS, which stresses that hardship rather than debt is the key issue for many of its members.

The rest will be needed to make up for lost grant. For an unfortunate group with incomes around 18,000, 1,760 more loan will mean only 120 more cash in hand. At incomes up to 25,000, student loan debt will rise by between 45 and 60 per cent, but spending power only by between 2 and 17 per cent. Over four Red Nike Air Force 1 High Tops
years, young Scots from lower income homes will now need to borrow 22,000 to obtain their full state support for living costs (26,000 for mature students). A main selling point of the new system has been that it is, in the words of the Scottish Government, "the best package of student supp.
