On 11 July 2017, the Welsh Government confirmed a new package of support available for full-time undergraduate, part time undergraduate and post-graduate students from Wales from the start of the 2018/19 academic year.

Based on the recommendations from the Diamond review, the new system will introduce maintenance support for students for day-to-day costs rather than post-graduation fee repayment and the changes apply to students who start the first year of their course in the 2018/19 academic year.

Further changes for postgraduate students are expected for September 2019.

As stated by Kirsty Williams, Cabinet Secretary for Education, the changes will be subject to regulations being made.

The Welsh Government has published a list of Frequently Asked Questions and an infographic regarding the changes to student support.
