Please note, any information you provide to us with regards to the bursaries and scholarships above will be used for the assessment of award eligibility, award allocation, and the admissions process of the University. Your award eligibility assessment is generally only seen by bursaries and scholarships support staff. In some situations however, other university staff may see your application/award assessment and relevant information if it is necessary for the purpose of assessment, implementation of award, or in order to provide further support. For example, information may be shared in cases where an award is co-administered with an academic school or department, or with Enrolment, Finance, or Commercial Services to implement your award, or with Student Services colleagues in relation to support provision.

This grant/financial assistance is awarded in line with the requirements of our Welsh Language Policy, published to ensure compliance with the Welsh Language Standards (No.6) Regulations 2017, under the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011.
