Only institutions with automatic designation or specific designation will have their courses eligible for student support.
Institutions with a HEFCW approved fee and access plan will have their full-time higher education courses automatically designated for student support.
The arrangements for part-time courses are different. One of the requirements for the automatic designation of a part-time course is that it is provided by a publicly funded educational institution in the United Kingdom. For more information on fee and access plans, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Institutions that wish for their courses to be designated for student support on a case by case basis will have to apply to Welsh Government.
Welsh Government has recently published its Policy for Specific Designation. For more information contact email@example.com.
