Explanatory Memorandum to Higher Education (Northern Ireland) Order 2005


38.The commencement section provides for some provisions to come into force one week after the Order is made, and the remainder to be commenced by order by the Department. The reasons for early commencement are to ensure that systems for producing plans in relation to the charging of higher fees can be put in place in time for students to have adequate notice of fee arrangements before applying for entrance in 2006, and to safeguard public funds in relation to bankruptcy.
