  • PT is the number of academic years ordinarily required to complete the designated part-time course.

(e)where the relevant income is £23,145, the maximum amount of support available under paragraph (1)(b) is payable and the amount of assistance payable under paragraph (1)(a) is £50;

(f)where the relevant income exceeds £23,145 but is less than £23,745, the maximum amount of support available under paragraph (1)(b) is payable and no support is payable under paragraph (1)(a);

(g)where the relevant income is £23,745 or more but less than £25,645, no support is available under paragraph (1)(a) and the amount of support payable under paragraph (1)(b) is the amount left after deducting from the maximum amount of support available under paragraph (1)(b) £1 for every complete £9.50 by which the relevant income exceeds £23,745;

(h)where the relevant income is £25,645, no support is payable under paragraph (1)(a) and the amount of support payable under paragraph (1)(b) is £50;

(i)where the relevant income exceeds £25,645, no support is payable under paragraph (1).

(6) Where paragraph (5)(d) applies, the amount of support payable under paragraph (1)(a) is determined by deducting from the maximum amount of support available under paragraph (1)(a) one of the following amounts—

(a)£50 plus a further £1 for each complete £9.50, £7.63 or £5.93 by which the relevant income exceeds £15,345 according to whether the intensity of study is level 1, 2 or 3, respectively; or

(b)where the basic grant is greater than the actual fees, an amount equal to that left after deducting from the amount calculated under sub-paragraph (a) the difference between the basic grant and the actual fees (unless the amount is a negative number in which case the maximum amount of support available under paragraph (1)(a) is payable).

(7) Where under regulation 57 a student receives support in relation to more than one designated part-time course in an academic year, the maximum amount of support under paragraph (1)(a) for that year is the amount of the basic grant for the course with the highest intensity of study that the student undertakes in that academic year.

(d)where immediately before he or she became an eligible part-time student he or she was eligible to apply, but had not applied, for a loan for living costs in respect of that year, or had not applied for the maximum amount or increased maximum for which he or she was entitled, he or she may apply for such a loan or such additional amount of loan as if he or she had continued to be an eligible student; and in the circumstances mentioned in paragraph (4) the maximum or increased maximum amount of such loan for the academic year is reduced in accordance with that paragraph.

(4) Where the request under paragraph (1) is made during the first quarter of the academic year in respect of which the loan is payable the maximum amount or increased maximum amount of loan (as the case may be) is reduced by two thirds, and where the request is made during the second quarter of that year that amount is reduced by one third.

(5) Where an eligible part-time student ceases to undertake a designated part-time course and transfers to a designated course at the same or at another institution, the National Assembly must convert that student’s status as an eligible part-time student to that of an eligible student in connection with the course to which he or she is transferring where—

(d)where an amount of grant for any purpose has been paid to the student pursuant to regulation 54 in a single instalment, the maximum amount of grant payable to him or her under regulation 19 for that purpose is reduced (or, where sub-paragraph (c) applies, further reduced) by the amount of grant paid to him for that purpose pursuant to regulation 54 and where the resulting amount is nil or a negative amount that amount is nil.
