The Welsh Government has made extra funding available to Welsh universities to support postgraduate education for the academic year 2018/19.

At Cardiff, this package of support will be in the form of a tuition fee discount of £3,400 to eligible Welsh and EU students starting a master’s course in September 2018.

We recognise the value of postgraduate study for both students and for the wider contribution students can make to the economy, society and to the future economic prosperity in Wales.
