The Scottish ACT Levy passed in August 2016 requires all international medical students enrolled in Scottish medical schools from the 2016/2017 academic year onwards to pay a sum of £10,000 per year. This is in addition to medical school tuition fees.
In March, a survey was conducted by SMSUK, Malaysian Medics International United Kingdom (MMIUK), and the United Kingdom & Eire Council of Malaysian Students (UKEC) to better understand this. Following a critical analysis of the responses, we have formulated a joint statement in response to the issue.
Through this joint statement, we hope to raise awareness regarding the circumstances of our affected members in Scottish medical schools.
We thank you for your help in participating in the survey and for sharing your thoughts and concerns. The SMSUK is committed to supporting you wherever and whenever we can, and will continue to respresent your interests to the best of our ability.
