Student Finance Wales for practitioners

Up to date information and supporting materials for our student finance products and services.

Student Finance Wales is a service which is run in partnership with the Student Loans Company (SLC) and the Welsh Government. We work together to provide students living in Wales with financial support when they need it most. There are loans and grants available to help with tuition fees and living costs no matter where students choose to study in the UK. Extra help is also available for students that have child or adult dependants or a disability.

This section of the website is dedicated to supporting practitioners across Wales who give advice to students in higher education and their parents. You’ll find policy information, and a wealth of practitioner factsheets that you can use in the classroom or when giving advice on any aspect of higher education funding in Wales.
