Bursaries are extra financial help available from your university or college.
You can only receive a Welsh National Bursary if you’re:
The minimum available for 2016/17 and 2017/18 is £347 but you may get more. Your university or college can provide more information on the exact amount of bursary available.
The Welsh National Bursary was integrated into the Welsh Government Learning Grant or Special Support Grant. Therefore, you won’t be eligible to receive a separate bursary unless you were a gap-year student in 2011/12. However your university or college can continue to pay their own institutional awards.
When you apply for student finance, you must make sure that you and anyone supporting your application allows consent for us to share your application information for bursary and scholarship purposes.
We will assume you'll give your consent unless you opt out. If you do opt out then you won’t be automatically assessed for any bursaries that you may be entitled to.
