Fee Waiver Scheme

If you live in Wales you may be eligible to have your fees waived under the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales' Part-Time Undergraduate Fee Waiver scheme.

With the support of the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) we are offering a fee waiver scheme (subject to availability) to support students who would not otherwise have access to higher education. Eligible students will have their course fees paid by HEFCW.

To be eligible for a fee waiver you:

  • must not study more than 20 credits in this academic year
  • must be living in Wales

You must also meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • you are from an area of socio-economic deprivation or low participation in higher education,
  • you receive qualifying benefits such as Universal Credit,
  • you belong to a Black, Asian or minority ethnic group,
  • you are a refugee or asylum seeker,
  • you have a disability,
  • you are a carer,
  • you are a Care Leaver or Care Experienced,
  • You identify as LBGTQ+
  • your Parents/guardians are not educated to higher education level.

For more information read our Fee Waiver Scheme Guidance

Please be aware that the student fee waiver scheme is subject to availability.

To apply for the Fee Waiver Scheme, please complete the  Fee Waiver Application Form (Academic Year 2023/2024)

Please note that the fee waiver process can take up to a month to complete. Give yourself plenty of time before starting the course.

For successful applicants we reserve the right to charge a fee if you enrol on a course but are unable to attend, or complete course assignments.
