Transfer of certain functions to National Assembly for Wales

67.Section 44 transfers to the National Assembly for Wales the majority of regulation-making powers in respect of student support contained in the 1998 Act. Certain functions are not transferred, for example those powers whose use is connected with taxation and bankruptcy, which are UK-wide matters. The Assembly intends in practice to make regulations affecting students who have a prescribed connection with Wales when they start their course, regardless of the location of the institution at which they are studying and of their place of residence after graduation.
