Martina Rotolo is an Italian student who moved to the UK two years ago to study, which she was able to do because she only had to pay the same tuition rates as UK residents. And she loved it!

But while she now wants to continue her education and get her PhD, she’s facing higher tuition fees, like other international students from outside the EU. And those fees can be more than twice as much as the tuition paid by home students, leaving her with a bill that she would be unable to pay without scholarships.
