Financial and other support for students

Fees and financial support are different within each of the countries of the UK, and HEFCW does not offer any bursaries or grants to students or projects directly. Wales sets its own fees upper limit and financial packages for students from Wales, the rest of the UK, the European Union, and the rest of the world.

HEFCW regulates higher education providers' fee plans, which summarise the bursaries and scholarships offered by individual institutions using the additional funding they raise through charging tuition fees. Links to current fee plans are on the Full-time undergraduate fees page.
