I only wish all HEI's were so sensible! Unfortunately, I think the only way some HEI's will change their rules is if the legislation is changed and made clearer to ensure that writing up students remain exempt.

I lost an appeal arguing the point that   

" a student is deemed to be undertaking a full-time course  "
beginning with the days on which he begins the course and ending with the
day on which he ceases to undertake it, and a person is to be regarded as
ceasing to undertaker a course of education...if he has completed it,
abandoned it or is no longer permitted by the educational establishment to attend it" "

We deal with this by simply stating that the studenbt IS still enrolled on
their course and that this therefore satisfied the legislation.  Under the
legislation, a student is deemed to be undertaking a full-time course  "
beginning with the days on which he begins the course and ending with the
day on which he ceases to undertake it, and a person is to be regarded as
ceasing to undertaker a course of education...if he has completed it,
abandoned it or is no longer permitted by the educational establishment to
attend it."   So we say that PG students "writing up" are still on their
original FT course.
Hope this helps.
