Cardiff University offer bursaries based on a students household income to full time UK undergraduate students who started their course at Cardiff University after 2006. Eligibility depends on a students assessed household income.  Students whose fees are paid by the NHS are not eligible for these awards.

Application Process

There is no application process; but do remember to give consent to share your household income with the university when you apply for student funding.  We will automatically review your eligibility and notify you if you are eligible in the first term; normally by letter to your home address . 

You can view a copy of this letter under correspondence on your Student Loans Company account .  If you have not given consent to share you can do so by contacting your award authority.


Bursary Payments

Payment dates 2013-14         31st January 2014       21st  March 2014.  

You are paid via the SLC to the same bank account as your student loan is paid into.

To see how much bursary you might receive please try our calculator. Please note that household incomes are determined by award authority assessments only. Please refer to the regulations applying to your award authority.  You can receive a Cardiff University Bursary if you have not taken out a student loan but your household income must be assessed by your award authority and the information shared with the university.

The calculator only covers students who started University in 2012 or 2013; for  bursary levels in other years and for full terms and conditions for all years follow the eligibility link in the Frequently Asked Questions section below.
