Maximum period of eligibility – tuition fee loans and grants for certain continuing students

16.—(1) This regulation applies to—

(a)an eligible student whose present course is a full-time end-on course (the course in relation to which the present course is an end-on course being referred to in paragraph (2) as the “preliminary course”);

(b)an eligible student—

(i)who has completed a full-time course for the Diploma of Higher Education or for the Higher National Diploma or Higher National Certificate of either the Business and Technology Education Council or the Scottish Qualification Authority (the “preliminary course”),

(ii)whose present course is a full-time first degree course (other than a first degree course for the initial training of teachers) that the student did not begin immediately after the preliminary course, and

(iii)who has not undertaken a full-time first degree course after the preliminary course and before the present course;

(c)an eligible student—

(i)who has completed a full-time foundation degree course (the “preliminary course”),

(ii)whose present course is a full-time honours degree course that the student did not begin immediately after the preliminary course, and

(iii)who has not undertaken a full-time first degree course after the preliminary course and before the present course.

(2) Where this regulation applies, the maximum period of eligibility for a tuition fee loan, a base grant, a maintenance grant, a disabled student’s grant, a grant for travel or a grant for dependants is the period calculated as follows—

  • The greater of three years or the ordinary duration of the present course.

  • Plus

  • The greater of one year or the ordinary duration minus one year of the preliminary course (or preliminary courses in total if the student completed more than one course which is to be treated as a preliminary course).

  • Less

  • Number of academic years undertaken by the eligible student on the preliminary course (or preliminary courses) excluding years repeated by the eligible student for compelling personal reasons.

(3) If the Welsh Ministers determine that regulation 18 applies to a student, they may add one or more additional years to the calculation made under paragraph (2) as they think appropriate.
