Scholarships & Bursaries
Cardiff is one of the most successful and popular universities in the UK. The standards of applications is high and competition for places is strong with the vast majority of our students at their first choice university. In order to ensure that we continue to recruit the very best students we are introducing more than 100 prestigious new scholarships. Each Cardiff University Scholarship is worth around £3,000. They are cash payments and are not means-tested. The scholarships are available in the following subject areas:
City and Regional Planning
Earth and Ocean Sciences
- Communication, Electrical & Electronic
- Computer Systems
Students who accept offers for these courses on a firm basis by the 31st July will automatically be considered for a scholarship. The scholarships will be awarded to the UK/EU students coming to Cardiff with the highest academic attainment in each subject area. This judgement will be made by admissions tutors at enrolment on the basis of your exam results.
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. The Cardiff Bursary Scheme provides additional financial support for students from lower income backgrounds. This money is available on top of state-funded maintenance grants and loans.
