An Assembly Learning Grant is available to help full-time higher education students from Wales. The grant is income assessed so if you want to be assessed for a grant you must supply your assessment authority with information about your household income. The amount of grant you will receive will depend on the level of your household income and your year of entry
The grants are non-repayable and can be applied for at the same time as applying for a student maintenance loan, using the same application form.
The maximum grant available for new students from Wales in 2013/14 is £5,161. The actual amount a student will receive will depend upon their household income.
The amount of Maintenance Loan a student receives will be reduced by £0.50 for every £1 of Assembly Learning Grant they are entitled to.
