Towards Scottish Independence? Understanding the Referendum

Scottish and British flags

These videos formed part of a course that ran for three weeks in the run up to Scotland’s 2014 Independence Referendum. The course aimed to enable learners to join the debate as it happened, engaging critically and constructively with the arguments of both sides and other learners, and benefiting from the input of leading academics.

The course explored six key questions:

  • Why is Scotland having a referendum?
  • What does ‘Yes’ mean?
  • What does ‘No’ mean?
  • What do Scots think?
  •  The Day After
  • What Next?
