Policy Date of Effect Rules – Continuing students

For continuing students in primary, secondary and tertiary education, education allowance may be paid continually beyond the last payday in December (or over the relevant holiday period) where it is clear that the student will continue full time studies in the next academic year.

Where a student’s education allowance has been cancelled, the education allowance may be restored to the date of suspension or cancellation if proof of enrolment is received by 31 March in the following year.

Proof of enrolment submitted after 31 March must be accompanied by an application form and payment of the education allowance may only begin from the payday after receipt of that application.
