The Coleg offers financial support to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. A number of the University’s degree schemes in a variety of academic disciplines are eligible for one of the Coleg’s scholarships. Scholarship holders will have the opportunity to work towards the Coleg's Language Skills Certificate qualification.
(i) Lead Scholarships
The Lead Scholarships are worth £3000 (£1000 a year) and are offered to students studying 80 credits or more per year through the medium of Welsh. Applicants must sit our Entrance Scholarship Exam in order to be considered for one of the the Coleg's Lead Scholarships at Aberystwyth University. They should complete the relevent appendix on the scholarship application form to register for the exam. Coleg Cymraeg Lead Scholarships awarded by one institution are not transferrable to different institution.
(ii) Incentive Scholarships
The Coleg also offers Incentive Scholarships worth £1500 (£500 a year) and these are available on courses where there is an opportunity to study 40 credits per year through the medium of Welsh. There is no need to sit an exam for the Incentive Scholarships.
For further details about how to apply and for application forms, please visit the student section on the Coleg's website.
Don’t forget about the University’s Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards. Further information can be found here.
The College’s Research Scholarship Scheme provides a subsistence grant and fees - which is equivalent to UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) post-graduate scholarships – to prospective academics who are studying for a doctorate. The holders of these scholarships also receive training in research and teaching skills and gain experience by contributing towards undergraduate modules through the medium of Welsh.
