Bursary Numbers and Allocation

Our intake numbers are decided by the NHS in Wales, which take into consideration professional requirements.

Allocation of the Undergraduate bursaries are dependant on academic achievement and satisfying all entry requirements associated with the programmes. 

Bursary numbers are limited for NHS programmes.  Whilst we make every effort to limit the number of offers to minimise the risk of disappointment of not having a bursary, occasionally the number of students achieving the conditions for entry exceeds the number of bursary funded places available.  Should this situation arise, Cardiff Met will operate a points system based on academic achievement and/or interview scores as well as a Firm reply.  Unfortunately, for those applicants who choose Cardiff Met as their Insurance choice, we cannot guarantee a place.

In exceptional circumstances, the Programme Director may also offer a guaranteed place for the following year.

Due to the different application system for Postgraduate, the number of offers made will reflect the allocation of bursaries available.
