(2) For the purposes of calculating the amount of fee support under this Part, an institution that provides courses designated by regulation 4 of the Education (Student Support) (Dance and Drama) Regulations 1999(1) is not to be regarded as publicly funded by reason only that it receives public funds from the governing body of a higher education institution in accordance with section 65(3A) of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992(2).

(4) This paragraph applies to—

(a)a compressed degree student;

(b)a disabled eligible student who—

(i)is not a compressed degree student; and

(ii)is undertaking a designated course in the United Kingdom but is not in attendance because the eligible student is unable to attend for a reason which relates to the eligible student’s disability.

(5) An eligible student who is undertaking a distance learning course does not qualify for any fee support under this Part in respect of that course unless the Welsh Ministers consider that the student is undertaking the course in Wales on the first day of the first academic year.

(6) An eligible student who is undertaking a distance learning course will no longer qualify for any fee support under this Part in respect of that course if the Welsh Ministers consider that the student is undertaking the course outside the United Kingdom.
