Reply To: Dependants grant paid to students

Laura Moore

I found the answer from our student awards office here in Plymouth – students with a dependants element on their grant get to keep it for the Summer term. From October 2003, it is abolished, but replaced with a ‘parent learning allowance’, which is payable in addition to any claim for Child Tax Credit. So from April to July they can receive both CTC and the dependant’s allowance.
