Qualifying Criteria

To qualify as a full time student you must be:

  • Undertaking a full time course of education at a prescribed educational establishment (such as a college or university).
  • The course must last for 24 weeks per academic year.
  • The course must require 21 hours per week of studying (this includes periods of  study, tuition or work experience)

Please note - where a course includes periods of work experience, the hours of study and tuition must exceed the hours of  work experience. This excludes classroom based courses.

You can also qualify as a student if you are:

  • Under 20  studying for a qualifying course of education, which is not higher education (eg A-levels).
  • A student nurse
  • Appointed as a foreign language assistant at a school or college in Great Britain and registered with the Central Bureau for Educational Visits and Exchanges.
  • Undertaking a correspondence course eg in Open University. (To qualify, 120 points of study is equivalent to a full academic year and this must be certificated by the University).
