Full-time students – restrictions on support for honours graduates

24.—(1) If an eligible student undertaking a full-time course has attained an honours degree from an institution in the United Kingdom (an “honours graduate”) the student does not qualify for a tuition fee loan, base grant, maintenance grant or maintenance loan under these Regulations unless the student—

(a)falls within one of the Cases set out in paragraph (2), and

(b)in each Case, satisfies the particular qualifying conditions relating to the support in question.

(2) The Cases are—

Case 1

An honours graduate may qualify for support under these Regulations if the present course is—

(a)a course for the initial training of teachers of no more than two years duration, and the graduate is not a qualified teacher, or

(b)an accelerated graduate entry course.

Case 2

An honours graduate may qualify for a maintenance loan if any of the following applies—

(a)the present course leads to a qualification as a social worker, medical doctor, dentist, veterinary surgeon or architect;

(b)the graduate is to receive any payment under—

(i)a healthcare bursary, the amount of which is calculated by reference to the graduate’s income, or

(ii)a Scottish healthcare allowance, the amount of which is calculated by reference to the graduate’s income in respect of any academic year of the present course;

(c)the present course is a course for the initial training of teachers.

Case 3

Despite paragraph (1), if—

(a)the present course is considered to be a single course by virtue of regulation 6(3) and (4), and

(b)the course leads to an honours degree from an institution in the United Kingdom being conferred on the eligible student before the final degree or equivalent qualification,

the conferring of that honours degree does not prevent the student from qualifying for support under these Regulations in respect of any part of that single course.

Case 4

Regulation 26 applies.
