Helping You to Help Your Adult Learners
|The Welsh Government has introduced a new financial support package for part-time learners in Wales. From September, support will be provided to new adult part-time learners in the same way as younger full time learners. Grants and loans will be provided by Student Finance Wales to help with the cost of living, so learners can concentrate on their studies and not worry about finances.
This is a great opportunity for adult learners in Wales to get back into or progress their learning.
- There’s a non-means-tested grant of up to £750 per year
- There are further generous grants of up to £3750 for students based on their household income.
- Tuition fee loans are also still available to help pay course fees
As Wales’ largest provider of part-time undergraduate study, we know a lot about the many and varied barriers people may have to studying part-time. We know that part-time students are more debt averse than younger full-time counterparts – many have mortgages, receive benefits, have existing debts and commitments, or are supporting their own children through university. Plus there are other issues like lack of confidence, little previous study or qualifications, support in taking that first step to university that many of our students face.
