Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Education (Fees and Awards) (Scotland) Regulations 1983 to extend the existing power to charge higher relevant fees in the case of students who do not have a relevant connection with the United Kingdom and Islands, and are not excepted students within the meaning of Schedule 1 to those Regulations. The power, which applied to students undertaking full time and sandwich courses, is extended to cover also students who undertake part-time courses.
The power to charge such higher relevant fees will not apply where the student begins the part-time course before 1st September 1995.

1983 c. 40; section 1 was amended by the Education Reform Act 1988 (c. 40), Schedule 12, paragraph 91 and by the Further and Higher Education (Scotland) Act 1992 (c. 37), Schedule 9, paragraph 8.

S.I. 1983/1215, to which relevant amendments have been made by S.I. 1992/1025 and 1597.
