Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations consolidate with only minor and drafting amendments the Education Authority Bursaries (Scotland) Regulations 1995 (S.I. 1995/1739 (S.119)) and subsequent amending instruments, which are revoked with transitional provisions by the Education (Graduate Endowment, Student Fees and Support) (Scotland) Revocation Regulations 2007 (S.S.I. 2007/148 ).

They regulate the exercise by education authorities of their powers under section 49 of the Education (Scotland) Act 1980 to pay bursaries to persons undertaking courses of study. They prescribe that bursaries may only be paid to persons who fulfil certain criteria as to eligibility and they prescribe the conditions and requirements subject to which allowances may be paid.

The definitions of “employment” (including “employed”) and “parent” (including “child”) have been clarified.

Support in relation to fees only has been extended to include nationals of EU overseas territories.

Tables of Derivations and Destinations have been prepared identifying individual regulations in these Regulations with the equivalent provisions in the superseded Regulations and vice versa. Copies of the Tables may be obtained from the Scottish Executive, Higher Education and Learner Support Division, Europa Building, 450 Argyle Street Glasgow, G2 8LG. The Tables have been prepared to assist readers of the Regulations and do not have any legal effect.
