The Student Grant Scheme and the Student Support Regulations for the 2012/13 academic were published by my Department earlier this week. The nationality requirements for the scheme are set out in section 14 of the Student Support Act 2011 and regulation 5 of the Student Support Regulations 2012.

The nationality requirements are currently under separate review within my Department.
