Estranged Student Bursary

Our Estranged Student Bursary can offer help to young students who are studying without the support of a family network.


Young students who are irreconcilably estranged from their families at the beginning of their course. These awards are considered on an case-by-case basis. The payment may be paid in addition to the Cardiff University Bursary.

Amount awarded

Up to £3,000 for a typical three-year course.

How to apply

If you have specified on your UCAS application that you are an estranged student, 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.
