Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which come into force on 11th December 2000, amend the Education (Grants for Disabled Postgraduate Students) Regulations 2000 (“the principal Regulations”).

Following amendment of section 22 of the Teaching and Higher Education Act 1998 by the Learning and Skills Act 2000, the Regulations provide for grant to eligible students undertaking designated courses whether they attend their courses or whether they pursue their courses through open learning. Accordingly, references in the principal Regulations to “attending” or “attendance at” a course are amended at regulations 3, 4 and 6 to 9.

The Regulations also amend the principal Regulations in other respects. Regulation 3(2)(a)(iv) of the principal Regulations is amended so that a person is ineligible for grant where the payment received from his institution to meet additional costs incurred due to his disability is part of an allowance, bursary or other such award made by his institution (regulation 4(2)(b)).

Regulation 3(4) of the principal Regulations is amended so that eligible students must be ordinarily resident in England and Wales on the first day of each academic year, not just at the start of the course (regulation 4(3)).

Regulation 4(1)(a) of the principal Regulations is amended so that postgraduate courses entry for which a qualification higher than a first degree is normally required are designated by regulation 4(1) (regulation 5).

(1)

1998 c. 30; section 22 was amended by the Learning and Skills Act 2000 (c. 21), section 146.

(2)

S.I. 2000/2330.
