HC Deb 04 November 1965 vol 718 c216W
61. Mr. William Yates

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what funds are available from his Department to maintain students on approved courses overseas; and what request he has received from the Woolwich Polytechnic for their market research course.

Mr. Prentice

The University and Other Awards Regulations, 1965 provide that students attending an educational establishment abroad as part of their designated course continue to receive grant from their local education authority. Payment of grant is not continued, however, for periods of industrial, professional or commercial experience in a sandwich course and this was explained to the Head of Department at Woolwich Polytechnic when he inquired on 14th January, 1965.
