Student Carers Bursary

The Student Carers Bursary provides financial support to student young adult carers who are more likely to incur extra financial costs and greater challenges due to managing a caring role alongside their studies.


This bursary is for student young adult carers. Qualifying carers will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Amount awarded

£3,000 over the duration of your course. These payments may be made in addition to the Cardiff University Bursary.

How to apply

If you have specified on your UCAS application that you are a student carer, we will invite you to apply for this bursary if you meet the terms and conditions. Alternatively, you may download and complete an application form from the student intranet after enrolment.
