13.3.3.1 Online courses and the living away from home rate

A student who is required to live away from home may be eligible for the living away from home rate when studying a full-time course online if they meet the criteria set out in part 3.4 of the Instruments (ie – the reason why the student is living away from home). These criteria include where the student is a member of an itinerant family or where home conditions are detrimental to the student’s educational progress.

Delegates should consider these applications on a case-by-case basis and seek advice from the Policy team if required.
