64.  A grant for travel is a grant made available by the Welsh Ministers to an eligible student in the circumstances set out in regulation 65(1) or 66(1).

Grant for travel for medical students

65.—(1) A grant for travel is available to an eligible student if the following conditions are satisfied—

Condition 1

The present course is a full-time course in—

(a)medicine, or

(b)dentistry,

a necessary part of which is a period of study by way of clinical training.

Condition 2

In the academic year in question, the eligible student is obliged to incur expenditure for the purpose of attending—

(a)a hospital, or

(b)other premises,

in the United Kingdom (not comprised in the institution providing the present course) so as to undertake clinical training as part of the course.

Condition 3

The academic year is not a year in respect of which the student is eligible to apply for—

(a)a healthcare bursary, or

(b)a Scottish healthcare allowance,

calculated by reference to the student’s income (whether or not the calculation results in a nil amount).

(2) But a grant for travel is not available where the eligible student is a Category 6 eligible student by virtue only of paragraph 6(1) of Schedule 2 and does not fall within any of the other categories of eligible student specified in that Schedule.

(3) The amount of grant for travel payable under this regulation in respect of an academic year is the amount determined by the Welsh Ministers as follows—

Step 1

Determine the amount of reasonable expenditure incurred by the eligible student in the academic year in question for the purpose mentioned in Condition 2 of paragraph (1) (including expenditure incurred for that purpose before or after attending the hospital or other premises).

Step 2

If the eligible student’s household income (see Schedule 3) is £59,200 or less in respect of that year, deduct £303 from the amount arrived at in Step 1.

If the eligible student’s household income is more than £59,200 in respect of that year, deduct £1,000 from the amount arrived at in Step 1.

The result is the amount of grant for travel payable.

(4) Expenditure incurred for the purpose of residential study away from the institution providing the present course is not expenditure incurred for the purpose mentioned in Condition 2 of paragraph (1).

For at least of half of any quarter of the academic year in question, the eligible student attends, as part of the course—

(a)an overseas institution (including the University of London Institute in Paris), or

(b)an overseas work placement in an Erasmus year,

(such attendance being referred to in this regulation as “the placement” and such a quarter being referred to as a “qualifying quarter”).

Condition 3

The student incurs—

(a)travel costs, or

(b)any expenditure mentioned in paragraph (3),

for the purpose of the placement.

(2) The amount of grant for travel payable under this regulation in respect of an academic year is the amount determined by the Welsh Ministers in accordance with the following formula—

Where—

  • X is the aggregate of the reasonable travel costs that the eligible student is obliged to incur in each qualifying quarter for the purposes of the placement;

  • Y is—

    (i)

    £303 if the eligible student’s household income (see Schedule 3) is £59,200 or less in respect of the academic year in question, or

    (ii)

    £1,000 if the eligible student’s household income is more than £59,200 in respect of that year;

  • Z is the aggregate of any expenditure incurred in each qualifying quarter specified in paragraph (3).

(3) The expenditure mentioned in paragraphs (1) and (2) is—

(a)expenditure that the eligible student reasonably incurs in insuring against liability for the cost of medical treatment provided outside the United Kingdom for any illness or personal injury contracted or suffered during the placement;

(b)the cost of any visa the student is obliged to obtain in order to attend the placement;

(c)medical costs that the student reasonably incurs in order to fulfil a mandatory condition of entry into the territory, country or state in which the placement is situated.

Grant for travel not payable for expenditure covered by disabled student’s grant

67.  Where a disabled student’s grant is payable to assist an eligible student with expenditure that the student is obliged to incur in connection with the present course by reason of the student’s disability, no grant for travel is payable under regulation 65 or 66 in respect of the same expenditure.
