Cardiff University Scholarships

We offer Cardiff University Scholarships worth £3,000 to eligible students.

The scholarships are cash payments and are not means tested. They will be awarded to UK undergraduate students undertaking an eligible degree subject who start their studies in September 2018 or 2019.

Scholarship criteria

In order to obtain a scholarship you need to:

  • achieve minimum grades AAA at A level (or an equivalent qualification)
  • satisfy all aspects of your offer
  • accept the offer of a place at Cardiff on a firm basis by 31 July 2018 (for 2018 entry) or 31 July 2019 (for 2019 entry).
  • meet all the terms of our terms and conditions.

You do not need to apply for this scholarship. You will be automatically considered for an award if:

  • you have accepted your offer for a designated degree programme from Cardiff University on a firm basis by 31 July 2018 (for 2018 entry) or 31 July 2019 (for 2019 entry) and
  • we have received and confirmed your exam results by 31 August 2018 (for 2018 entry) or 31 August 2019 (for 2019 entry).

If you have been awarded a scholarship you will be notified in writing by 31 October in the year that you start your course. Successful students will receive £1,500 in their first year and, subject to continuing satisfactory academic performance, the remaining £1,500 will be paid in equal instalments in each of the remaining years of their course.
