Description

This Handbook is designed to explain how Scottish student grants and loans are treated under the benefit and tax credit system. It is the only book to draw together this information in a comprehensive guide for advisers. Cross-referenced to the law, it contains easy-to-use checklists and examples. Student support in Scotland is now devolved to the Scottish Parliament and in many ways quite different from support available in England and Wales. This Handbook is designed to explain how Scottish grants and loans are treated under the benefit and tax credit system. It is the only book to draw together this information in a comprehensive guide for advisers. The contents include: benefit and tax credit rights for full-time and part-time students; a quick guide to grants and loans for students in Scotland aged 16 and over, in further or higher education; how Scottish grants and loans affect benefit; how much income support and housing benefit is paid in term time and vacations; studying and claiming jobseeker's allowance, or benefits for ill-health and disability; benefits and tax credits for students with children; lone parents' rights to benefits and tax credits. The Handbook, which is cross-referenced to the law, contains easy-to-use checklists and examples. Users include advice workers, money advisers, bursary officers, student services officers and student unions.show more
