(a)the gross amount of any premium or sum relating to a pension (not being a premium payable under a policy of life assurance) in respect of which relief is given under section 188 of the Finance Act 2004, or where the income is computed for the purposes of the income tax legislation of another Member State, the gross amount of any such premium in respect of which relief would be given if that legislation made provision equivalent to the Income Tax Acts;

(b)in any case where income is computed for the purposes of the Income Tax Acts by virtue of sub-paragraph (7), any sums equivalent to the deduction mentioned in paragraph (a) of this sub-paragraph, provided that any sums deducted do not exceed the deductions which would be made if the whole of P’s income were in fact income for the purposes of the Income Tax Acts;

(c)where P is a parent student or P holds a statutory award, £1,130.

(2) The Secretary of State may, for the purpose of enabling the eligible part-time student to attend the course without hardship, ascertain P’s residual income for the financial year beginning immediately before the relevant year (“the current financial year”) if the Secretary of State is satisfied that the aggregate of the residual incomes of P and the eligible part-time student’s parent in the current financial year is likely to be not more than 85% of the sterling value of the aggregate of—

(a)the residual income of P in the prior financial year applicable to P; and

(b)the residual income of the eligible part-time student’s parent in the prior financial year applicable to the parent.

(3) In the event that sub-paragraph (2) or this paragraph was applied in the previous academic year of the current course, the Secretary of State may, for the purpose of enabling the eligible part-time student to attend the course without hardship, ascertain P’s residual income for the current financial year if the Secretary of State is satisfied that the aggregate of the residual incomes of P and the eligible part-time student’s parent in the current financial year is likely to be not more than 85% of the sterling value of the aggregate of the residual incomes of P and the eligible part-time student’s parent in the previous financial year.

(4) In an academic year immediately following one in which the Secretary of State has ascertained P’s residual income for the current financial year under sub-paragraph (2) or, where applicable, under sub-paragraph (3), the Secretary of State must ascertain P’s residual income in the preceding financial year.

(5) In an academic year immediately following one in which the Secretary of State has ascertained P’s residual income for the previous financial year under sub-paragraph (4), the Secretary of State must ascertain P’s residual income in the prior financial year.

(6) Where P satisfies the Secretary of State that P’s income is wholly or mainly derived from the profits of a business or profession carried on by P, then any reference in this Schedule to a prior financial year in relation to P means the earliest period of twelve months which ends after the start of the financial year immediately preceding the preceding financial year and in respect of which accounts are kept relating to that business or profession.

(7) Where P is in receipt of any income which does not form part of P’s income for the purpose of the Income Tax Acts or the income tax legislation of another Member State by reason only that—

(a)P is not resident or domiciled in the United Kingdom, or where P’s income is computed as for the purposes of the income tax legislation of another Member State, not so resident or domiciled in that Member State;

(b)the income does not arise in the United Kingdom, or where P’s income is computed for the purposes of the income tax legislation of another Member State, does not arise in that Member State; or

(c)the income arises from an office, service or employment, income for which is exempt from tax in pursuance of any legislation,

P’s taxable income for the purposes of this Schedule is computed as though the income under this sub-paragraph were part of P’s income for the purpose of the Income Tax Acts or the income tax legislation of another Member State, as the case may be.

(8) Where P’s income is computed as for the purposes of the income tax legislation of another Member State, it is computed under the provisions of this Schedule in the currency of that Member State and P’s income for the purposes of this Schedule is the sterling value of that income determined in accordance with the average rate published by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs for the calendar year which ends before the end of the prior financial year.

(9) Where the Secretary of State determines that P and the eligible part-time student’s parent are separated for the duration of the relevant year, P’s residual income is not taken into account in determining the household income.

(10) Where the Secretary of State determines that P and the eligible part-time student’s parent have separated in the course of the relevant year, P’s residual income is determined by reference to P’s residual income under sub-paragraph (1) divided by 52 and multiplied by the number of complete weeks in the relevant year for which the Secretary of State determines that P and the eligible student’s parent are not separated..

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

This instrument amends the following Regulations (“the Student Finance Regulations”)—

  • the Education (Fees and Awards) (England) Regulations 2007 (S.I. 2007/779) (“the Fees and Awards Regulations”);

  • the Education (Student Support) (European University Institute) Regulations 2010 (S.I. 2010/447) (“the European University Institute Regulations”);

  • the Education (Student Support) Regulations 2011 (S.I. 2011/1986) (“the Student Support Regulations”);

  • the Further Education Loans Regulations 2012 (S.I. 2012/1818);

  • the Education (Postgraduate Master’s Degree Loans) Regulations 2016 (S.I. 2016/606) (“the Master’s Regulations”);

  • the Higher Education (Fee Limit Condition) (England) Regulations 2017 (S.I. 2017/1189) (“the Fee Limit Condition Regulations”);

  • the Education (Postgraduate Doctoral Degree Loans and the Education (Student Loans) (Repayment) (Amendment) (No. 2) etc.) Regulations 2018 (S.I. 2018/599) (“the Doctoral Regulations”).

Regulation 2 amends the Student Finance Regulations to provide that a student who has been granted indefinite leave to remain in the United Kingdom as a victim of domestic violence or domestic abuse is eligible to receive funding in respect of a further education course, an undergraduate higher education course, a master’s degree course or doctoral degree course, or a course at the European University Institute. There is no requirement that these students must have been resident in the UK, EEA or Switzerland for the 3 years immediately prior to the start of their course to qualify for funding. Further, if a student is granted indefinite leave to remain as a victim of domestic violence or domestic abuse after their course has begun, the student may become eligible for funding. Regulation 2 also amends the Fee Limit Condition Regulations to provide that a student granted indefinite leave to remain as a victim of domestic violence or domestic abuse is a “qualifying person”, meaning the student may not be charged more than a prescribed maximum amount in tuition fees. It also amends the Fees and Awards Regulations to provide that a student granted indefinite leave to remain as a victim of domestic violence or domestic abuse cannot be charged higher tuition fees than a prescribed maximum amount. Regulation 2(2)(a)(i) inserts an omitted definition of “Islands”.

Regulation 3 amends the Student Finance Regulations to provide that a student who has been granted Calais leave to remain in the United Kingdom is eligible to receive funding in respect of a further education course, and undergraduate higher education course, a master’s degree course or a doctoral degree course, or a course at the European University Institute, as are any of their dependent children granted “leave in line”. Further, regulation 3 amends the Fee Limit Condition Regulations to provide that a student with Calais leave to remain (or their child) is a “qualifying person”, meaning the student may not be charged more than a prescribed maximum amount in tuition fees. It also amends the Fees and Awards Regulations to provide that a student with Calais leave to remain (or their dependent child) cannot be charged higher tuition fees than a prescribed maximum amount.

Regulation 4 amends the Student Support Regulations, in respect of full-time and part-time higher education courses and postgraduate courses, the Master’s Regulations, in respect of master’s degree courses, and the Doctoral Regulations, in respect of doctoral degree courses in Wales, to provide that a course in that devolved authority which has been specifically designated by the government of the relevant devolved authority (or in the case of a course in Scotland, which has been specifically designated by the governments of all three devolved authorities) is a designated course for the purpose of the applicable Regulations. The effect is that funding may be provided to eligible students undertaking the course.

Regulation 5 amends regulation 7 of the Student Support Regulations to provide that a student who transfers from a full-time course which started before 1st August 2019 to an accelerated course which started on or after 1st August 2019 will be entitled to apply for a fee loan for their accelerated course up to the higher limits that apply for an accelerated course starting on or after 1st August 2019 and grants and loans for living and other costs. The Secretary of State will be able to reassess the amount of support payable to the student after the transfer and the student may be able to apply to the Secretary of State to borrow an additional amount of loan in respect of the course to which the student transfers.

Regulation 6 updates the various formulae in regulation 47 of the Student Support Regulations which relate to full-time childcare grants. Additionally, regulation 6(2)(e)(ii) corrects the drafting in regulation 47(2BA) so that the formula correctly multiples the basic amount of childcare grant by 52, while regulation 6(2)(g) corrects regulation 47(6) to remove incorrect references to regulation 47(3AA) and 47(3B).

Regulation 6(2)(f) inserts paragraphs (5A) and (5B) into regulation 47 to provide that an eligible student may request less than the amount of childcare grant to which the student is entitled under regulation 47. Where a student makes such a request, the amount of childcare grant payable is the amount requested provided the Secretary of State considers the amount requested to be reasonable in the circumstances.

Regulation 7 corrects regulations 68 and 69 of the Student Support Regulations to provide that students aged 60 or over on the first day of the first academic year of their course do not qualify for reduced rate non-means tested loans for living costs. They qualify only for the fully means tested loan for living costs.

Regulation 8, in relation to an academic year which begins on or after 1st August 2020, amends the subject categories in the Student Support Regulations and the Fee Limit Condition Regulations to replace “geographical and environmental studies” with “geography, earth and environmental studies”.

Regulation 9 amends regulation 139 of the Student Support Regulations to provide that part-time courses of initial teacher training below degree level do not qualify for loans for living costs.

Regulation 10 amends Schedules 4 and 6 of the Student Support Regulations and makes provision in circumstances where a student’s household income is based on the incomes of both parents, or a student’s parent and the parent’s partner. In these circumstances, where the parents’, or parent and partner’s, income falls by 15% or more compared to either the “prior financial year” (as defined in the Student Support Regulations), or the previous financial year, the Secretary of State may assess the parent’s, or parent’s partner’s, income for the current financial year.

The amendments in regulation 10(3)(b)(i) (in the substitute sub-paragraph (5)) and 10(4)(c)(i) (in the substitute sub-paragraph (4)) corrects an instance of “(3) and, where applicable, under sub-paragraph (4)” to “(3) or, where applicable, under sub-paragraph (4)” and an instance of “(2) and, where applicable, under sub-paragraph (3)” to “(2) or, where applicable, under sub-paragraph (3)” when restating those sub-paragraphs of paragraph 5 of Schedule 4 and paragraph 5 of Schedule 6 to the Student Support Regulations respectively. Regulations 10(3)(b)(ii) and 10(4)(c)(ii) also correct the definition of “prior financial year” in paragraph 5 of Schedules 4 and 6.

Regulations 10(2), 10(3)(c) and 10(4)(d) make corrections to regulation 42(6), paragraph 6 of Schedule 4 and paragraph 6 of Schedule 6 respectively. Regulations 10(3)(c) and 10(4)(d) omit sub-paragraph (4) from paragraph 6 of Schedule 4 and paragraph 6 of Schedule 6 respectively.

Further, at regulation 10(4)(b), this instrument corrects paragraph 3 of Schedule 6 to the Student Support Regulations by adding an unintentionally omitted provision.

Regulation 11 and the Schedule to these Regulations amend the Student Support Regulations to update the payment rates for student support in relation to an academic year which begins on or after 1st August 2020.

Regulation 12 amends regulation 3 of the Master’s Regulations and regulation 3 of the Doctoral Regulations to provide that a student is not an “eligible student” under those Regulations where the student is excused from undertaking any part of the course as a result of previous experience or having completed part of a previous course, except where the student is transferring courses and the Secretary of State considers it reasonable in the circumstances that the student should be so excused.
