Bursary Scheme 2012/13
The Cardiff Centre for Lifelong Learning is making available a limited number of bursaries from September 2012. These will provide financial support for students from lower income backgrounds, and in particular those who are not eligible for other schemes such as the Student Fee Waiver Scheme, who are enrolled on particular programmes (see below).
Who will be eligible for the bursaries?
The Cardiff Centre for Lifelong Learning Bursaries are available to students who meet all the following criteria:
1) They are normally resident in the UK
2) They are liable personally for paying course fees (e.g. those eligible for, or claiming, the HEFCW Student Fee Waiver are therefore not eligible).
3) They are in receipt of one of the following means-tested benefits :
- Income Support
- Housing Benefit
- Job Seekers Allowance
- Council Tax Benefit

(Evidence supplied to support receipt of these benefits will need to be dated within 6 weeks prior to the start of the course.)
