asked the Minister of Education what is the amount of the grant awarded to a student who elects to pursue his medical studies at Trinity College, Dublin; and whether this is the same as the amount granted to a student who attends a provincial university away from home in some part of the United Kingdom.

Standard rates of grant are not prescribed for students from England and Wales attending universities outside Great Britain. The general practice of local education authorities when they make an award to a student at Trinity College, Dublin, is to use the rate for English and Welsh provincial universities. For a student living in lodgings, this rate is £265.
