    Can anyone advise on the following please.

    We have a non-dep student who finished college in June 2011. He has not worked during the summer vacation and has been supported financially by his mother. He has then started University from October 2011.

    So far we have assumed the lowest deduction for the non-dep from June 2011 to October 2011 and with effect from October we have amended him back to a full time student.

    I just wanted to check that this is the correct thing to do. He has not had any income during this time and has gone back to full time studies. Therefore, should we leave him as a full time student for the summer months and therefore not apply a deduction.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    What age is the non-dep & what was the nature of his previous course?

    As you say “college”, there is a strong possibility he should have been viewed as a “QYP” while on the previous course (and would move straight from QYP to ND student).

    Hello Andy

    Many thanks for your quick response.

    The non-dep is actually 21. He was previously studying “Biochemistry” at the Imperial College from the 04.10.08 to 1.7.11.

    I have just checked the information again and he has remained at the same college but is now studying “biochemistry research” for a further year.

    What do you think?

    Thank you

    Faye

    In which case I think you have taken the right approach. Unless (unlikely!) it can be demonstrated that the new course is simply an extension of then old one, then I think you’re correct.
