In 2011 the Welsh government chose to pay bursaries to Welsh students through  enhancing Assembly Learning grants by up to £600  The exact amount is determined by your  household income as assessed by your local education authority.

The 2011 Cardiff University bursary pays a similar level of support to UK students who do not receive an Assembly Learning Grant.

  • You must be paying tuition fees of over £3000

 NHS funded students are excluded from this bursary scheme.
