From 2012, Government funding of higher education is changing. Consequently, Cardiff University will charge a tuition fee of £9,000 per annum to new undergraduate students beginning their studies from September 2012 onwards. This will ensure that the University’s high-calibre research-led teaching is protected, and the vibrant student experience enjoyed by our students will be maintained and continually improved.
Students from Wales can apply for a (repayable) tuition fee loan of up to £3,575 per year to cover the initial tuition fee cost (subject to terms and conditions). This loan only has to be repaid after you finish your studies and earn a salary in excess of £21,000p/a. You may also be eligible for a (non repayable) Welsh Government tuition fee grant of up to £5,425, subject to terms and conditions, to cover the remaining tuition fee balance.
You can apply for a Maintenance Loan to help with your living costs. What you receive will depend on your personal circumstances. The maximum amounts available for new students starting university entry 2013/14 are:
The amount of Maintenance Loan you receive depends on your household income and any grant you receive.

For entry 2013/14, new students could be entitled to:
