Access to higher education for young people leaving care who have leave to enter or remain
Baroness Hamwee and Lord Paddick have proposed amendments to the Bill in regards to providing leaving care for young students who have leave to enter or remain. Those amendments will include: student support, tuition fees. Specifically, students fees may not be charged at a higher rate.
“Student support” means financial support by way of grant or loan made by the Secretary of State pursuant to regulations under section 22 of the Teaching and Higher Education Act 1998 (new arrangements for giving financial support to students).
“Tuition fees” means fees payable for a course of a description mentioned in Schedule 6 to the Education Reform Act 1988 (courses of higher education).”
