Cardiff Education Trust Fund

Once you are registered as a Cardiff University student, this fund can provide financial assistance to students who have attended Cardiff secondary schools for at least two years and who meet one of the following categories:

  • Estranged students (students without family support from after their 16th birthday until they have left school)
  • Students currently seeking asylum or who have parents seeking asylum in the UK
  • Students who are undertaking work placements as part of their study who are unable to meet the costs of attending such a placement

Awards are up to a maximum of £1,000 per student in a given academic year.

The awards are given to the students whose prospects are considered to be most likely to improve if granted this additional funding - whether that be in their ability to remain or succeed in higher education or through work placements improving their chances of employment after completing their studies.
