Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Education (Student Loans for Tuition Fees) (Scotland) Regulations 2006 (“the 2006 Regulations”) and the Education (Student Loans) (Scotland) Regulations 2007 (“the 2007 Regulations”).

The effect of these amendments is that the interest rates prescribed by the 2006 Regulations and the 2007 Regulations only apply to student loans which the Scottish Ministers have determined are to bear interest. Where the Scottish Ministers make such a determination then, subject to the low interest cap imposed by consumer credit legislation, the rate set by the Scottish Ministers will continue to be the equivalent to the annual percentage increase in the Retail Prices (All items) Index for the month of March preceding the beginning of the academic year in August or September.
