The companion to our popular Student Support and Benefits Handbook, this annual title is the key guide to the benefits system for students in Scotland.
It includes a quick guide to the grants and loans available for further and higher education in Scotland, and clear, easy-to-use information on students’ benefit entitlement and how this is affected by their student income. Also included is information on how benefits are affected in vacations and if a student takes time out from their course.
Fully updated for the 2019/20 academic year, the book is an invaluable resource for anyone who advises students in Scotland. It is fully cross-referenced to the law and includes easy-to-use checklists and examples.
The annual Children’s Handbook Scotland provides a complete guide to benefits and tax credits where children are living away from their parents, including children in kinship or foster care, children looked after by the local authority, and children at residential school, in residential care or in hospital.
