The University of Cardiff makes additional funding available for students who meet certain criteria, in the form of scholarships and bursaries. Scholarships and bursaries can be put towards living costs and student fees and don’t need to be paid back.
The uni offers several scholarships for particular courses and for students who achieve exceptional exam results or excel in an extra-curricular activity, such as music. For example, the Cardiff University Scholarship is worth £3,000 for eligible students who achieve a minimum of AAA at A-level (or equivalent qualification).
Additionally, the school of music offers numerous scholarships, such as the Morfydd Owen Instrumental and David Lloyd Vocal scholarships which are worth £400 for students who meet the criteria.
Among the bursaries on offer are the Armed Forces Bursary, that’s worth £1,000 for full-time students who’ve served in the armed forces, and the Estranged Student Bursary, which is for young students who are completely estranged from their families at the beginning of their course.
You can find out more information about the scholarships and bursaries on offer, as well as their eligibility criteria, on Cardiff University’s online funding pages.
