I propose to take Questions Nos. 303 and 304 together.
My officials understand from Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) that the grant application from the student in question was unsuccessful and that she appealed this decision to its appeals officer on 30th January 2013. The decision of the appeals officer issued to the student on 18th February 2013 which is within the 30 day statutory timeframe set down in the Student Support Act 2011.
The student's application is currently being re-assessed on foot of the appeals officer's decision and the outcome will be communicated to the student as promptly as possible. The Deputy will appreciate that in the absence of all of the relevant details that would be contained in an individual's application, including those relating to repeat periods of study, it would not be possible for me to say whether or not a student would qualify for a grant.
