I was in the process of doing the social work degree in England. Went off to have a baby in Jan and haven't went back yet.
I moved to England 2 years ago but my sil has just finished her degree in social work in Glasgow. She didn;t get the non repayable grant that social work students in the rest of the uk get.She didn't have any tuition fees to pay as tuition fees don't exist in Scotland. I think the tuition fees come to just under the grant.
Anyhow, if you are talking about the non repayable grant that all social work students in England get, then no you don't get that in Scotland. So it is swings and roundabouts.
Not sure if this makes sense.

Maybe everyone in Scotland gets their fees paid unless your a Scot studying in England and then you have to pay the fees.
