Payment of grants or loans for fees for new system eligible students

62.—(1) The Welsh Ministers must pay the fee grant, new fee grant or fee loan for which a new system eligible student qualifies to an academic authority to which the new system eligible student is liable to make payment.

(2) The Welsh Ministers may pay the fee grant, new fee grant or fee loan in such instalments (if any) and at such times as they consider appropriate.

(3) The Welsh Ministers must not pay the fee grant, new fee grant or fee loan, or any instalment of the fee grant, new fee grant or fee loan for which a new system eligible student qualifies unless they have received from the relevant academic authority—

(a)a request for payment; and

(b)confirmation of the new system eligible student’s attendance on the designated course.

(4) In this regulation “confirmation of the new system eligible student’s attendance on the designated course” (“cadarnhad o bresenoldeb y myfyriwr cymwys o dan y drefn newydd ar y cwrs dynodedig”) means confirmation from the relevant academic authority that the new system eligible student—

(a)has enrolled on and started attending the designated course, or in the case of a student who is treated as being in attendance under regulation 13(3) and 13(4), started to undertake the designated course, where the confirmation relates to full payment or a first instalment of the fee grant, new fee grant or fee loan; or

(b)remains enrolled and continues to attend the designated course at the date of confirmation, or in the case of a student who is treated as being in attendance under regulation 13(3) and 13(4), continues to undertake the designated course at the date of confirmation, where the confirmation relates to an instalment of the fee grant, new fee grant or fee loan other than the first instalment.

(5) Where assessment of a new system eligible student’s application or other matters have delayed the final calculation of the amount of fee grant, new fee grant or fee loan for which the new system eligible student qualifies, the Welsh Ministers may make a provisional assessment and payment.

(6) Where a new system eligible student ceases to attend or undertake a designated course during the academic year and the academic authority has determined or agreed that the student will not return during that academic year, the academic authority must inform the Welsh Ministers as soon as is practicable of the new system eligible student’s departure from the designated course.
