Bursary Correspondence

Confirmation Letter

You should receive a letter towards the end of the first term confirming that you will receive a bursary.  It will state the value of your bursary award and the payment dates.  The letter is sent to the address recorded as your home address with the Student Loans Company (SLC).  

Duplicate letters

A copy of your bursary letters will be held on your SLC  account under correspondence. (Not the university SIMS system)

If you contact us on BursariesandScholarhsips we can arrange for a duplicate letter to be sent to you.

Cancellation Letters

If you withdraw from the university or your circumstances change so that you no longer qualify for a bursary you will be sent a cancellation letter.  

If your circumstances change after you have received your full bursary payment and this triggers a re-assessment , the university will not normally reclaim the bursary.   However cancellation letters are raised automatically by the system, and may be sent automatically after a bursary award has been paid in full.   

In other circumstances the university  reserves the right to reclaim overpayments.  If in doubt contact the bursary team.


The bursary scheme is administered through Cardiff University but we arrange the payments through the SLC as they already hold your bank details.
