SECTION 3Termination of eligibility

Early termination of eligibility

19.—(1) An eligible student’s (“P’s”) period of eligibility terminates at the end of the day on which—

(a)P withdraws from P’s designated course and the Welsh Ministers do not transfer P’s status as an eligible student under regulation 28, or

(b)P abandons or is expelled from P’s designated course.

(2) Where—

(a)an eligible student’s (“P’s”) designated course is a distance learning course, and

(b)P undertakes the course outside the United Kingdom,

P’s period of eligibility terminates at the beginning of the first day on which P undertakes the course outside the United Kingdom.

(3) But paragraph (2) does not apply where P is undertaking a distance learning course outside the United Kingdom because P or a close relative of P is serving as a member of the armed forces.

Misconduct and failure to provide accurate information

20.—(1) The Welsh Ministers may terminate an eligible student’s period of eligibility if they are satisfied that the student’s conduct is such that the student is no longer fit to receive support.

(2) Paragraph (3) applies if the Welsh Ministers are satisfied that an eligible student—

(a)has failed to comply with a requirement to provide information or documentation under these Regulations, or

(b)has provided information or documentation which was materially inaccurate.

(3) Where this paragraph applies, the Welsh Ministers may—

(a)terminate the student’s period of eligibility;

(b)determine that the student does not qualify for a particular category of support or amount of such support.

Reinstatement of eligibility after termination

21.—(1) Where a student’s period of eligibility terminates under regulation 19 or 20 during the academic year in which the student completes the present course, the Welsh Ministers may reinstate the student’s period of eligibility for such period as they think appropriate.

(2) But a reinstated period of eligibility may not extend beyond the end of the maximum period of eligibility calculated in accordance with Section 2 of this Chapter.

Refugees who cease to have leave to remain

(a)a person (“P”) was a Category 2 eligible student (see Schedule 2) in connection with an application for support—

(i)for an earlier year of the present course,

(iii)for a course from which P’s status as an eligible student has been transferred to the present course under regulation 28 or paragraph 7 of Schedule 5, and

(b)as at the end of the day before the first day of the academic year in respect of which P is applying for support, the refugee status of—

(i)P, or

(ii)the person whose status as a refugee meant that P was a Category 2 eligible student,

has expired and no further leave to remain has been granted and no appeal is pending (within the meaning of section 104 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002)(1).

(2) Where this regulation applies, P’s status as an eligible student terminates immediately before the first day of the academic year in respect of which P is applying for support.

(iii)for a course from which P’s status as an eligible student has been transferred to the present course under regulation 28 or paragraph 7 of Schedule 5, and

(b)as at the end of the day before the first day of the academic year in respect of which P is applying for support, the period for which—

(i)P, or

(ii)the person who, as a result of having leave to enter or remain, caused P to be a category 3 eligible student,

is allowed to stay in the United Kingdom has expired and no further leave to remain has been granted and no appeal is pending (within the meaning of section 104 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002).
