Cardiff University is committed to ensuring that everyone who has the ability to study at Cardiff is able to do so whatever their financial circumstances. Cardiff University Bursaries will be available in 2013 to provide additional financial support if you are from a lower income background. This money is available on top of government funded maintenance grants and loans.
Cardiff University Bursaries are available to full-time undergraduate students from lower income households who are normally resident in the UK. The awards will be available to students beginning their undergraduate studies in September 2013.
In order to qualify you must be:
You should read the terms and conditions for full information about eligibility.
In 2013, bursaries will be designed to reflect the cost of living and will vary depending on the amount of government funding you receive towards your living costs. Government funded support is made up of the Assembly Learning Grant (in Wales) or the Maintenance Grant (in England) and the Maintenance Loan.
This bursary relates to the 2013/14 academic year. Details of any bursaries available in future years will be posted on our website closer to the time.
You don’t need to apply. Eligibility is determined through the statutory means test conducted by your UK student funding body to determine qualification for state grants and loans, so you won’t need to apply for a Cardiff University Bursary separately. Confirmation of the bursary is sent prior to the first payment at the end of January 2014.
Students who declare in their UCAS application that they are in care, may be eligible to receive an additional payment of £3,000. This payment may be paid in addition to the Cardiff University Bursary. An applicant must have been in care for 3 months since the age of 16 or 6 months from the age of 14, and under 25 at the start of the academic year their course commences.
Communities First Awards are for students who come to Cardiff University from Welsh Communities First areas and have a household income below £42,611. Eligible students receive either a £1,000 university residence fee discount or £500 travel bursary in their first year. This payment may be paid in addition to the Cardiff University Bursary.
1 As defined in the Student Support funding regulations. NHS funded students and PGCE students are excluded from the Bursary Scheme.2 Existing students should refer to the Student Support section of the University website.3 This commitment is based and calculated in all cases for a student receiving the maximum student loan available for a non final year student who lives away from home. If your loan is lower than this level you will receive a comparatively lower level of total government/university support than stated here. Qualifying Welsh students with a household income of under £22,449 will receive a bursary of £323.4 Please note that as part of the conditions of being assessed for a bursary the University will need to receive your data from your award authority regarding your household income. Therefore, you will need to ensure that you do not tick the box on the assessment form to withhold consent to share this information if you wish to be considered for the University bursary. This information is needed to assess if you are eligible for a bursary.
