Fee contribution loans

16.—(1) Subject to paragraph (7), an old system eligible student qualifies in accordance with this regulation for a fee contribution loan in respect of the fees payable by him or her in respect of, or otherwise in connection with his or her attendance on a designated course.

(2) Where an old system eligible student applies for a grant for fees and a fee contribution loan, the amount of the fee contribution loan in respect of an academic year of the designated course is the amount for which the student applies not exceeding the amount deducted from his or her grant for fees in accordance with regulation 46.

(3) Where the only fee support for which an old system eligible student applies is a fee contribution loan, the amount of that loan in respect of an academic year of the designated course is the amount for which the student applies not exceeding £1,200 or, if any of the circumstances in regulation 13(2) apply, £600.

(4) An old system eligible student may apply to borrow an additional amount of fee contribution loan where—

(i)the National Assembly determines that the maximum amount of fee contribution loan which has been notified to the student in relation to an academic year should be increased (including an increase from nil) as a result of a reassessment of the student’s contribution or otherwise; and

(ii)the National Assembly considers that the increase in the maximum amount does not result from the old system eligible student—

(aa)failing to provide information promptly which might affect his or her ability to qualify for a fee contribution loan for which he or she qualifies; or

(bb)providing information which is inaccurate in any material particular.

(5) The additional amount in paragraph (4) is an amount which when added to the amount already applied for does not exceed the increased maximum.

(6) Where an old system eligible student has applied for a fee contribution loan of less than the maximum amount to which he is entitled in relation to the academic year, he or she may apply to borrow an additional amount which, when added to the amount already applied for, does not exceed the relevant maximum applicable in his or her case.

(7) Paragraph (1) does not apply to an eligible student undertaking a course at a private institution or at Heythrop College.
