During the academic year, most students will have 2 costs to cover: tuition fees and living costs. We’re here to help with both!
- Tuition Fee Loan (for undergraduate students)
- Maintenance Loan (for undergraduate students)
- Welsh Government Learning Grant
- Postgraduate Master’s and Doctoral Loans
You can get extra support from Student Finance Wales if you have children or an adult who is financially dependent on you. There’s also extra help available for students with a disability.
If you’re a continuing undergraduate student, the application process is even easier. All you need to do is sign in to your account and confirm your details are still correct.
Remember, if you are a continuing postgraduate student you do not need to reapply for your funding. You should expect an entitlement letter for the new academic year around 6 weeks before the start of your course. Sign in to your online account to make sure all of your contact details are up to date.
