Cardiff Campus

Our Undergraduate and Postgraduate EU Scholarship scheme offers a scholarship on the international tuition fees for EU students joining us in academic year 2021/2022. The scholarship awarded will ensure that the tuition fees paid do not exceed the fee currently paid by UK students.

You will be considered for a scholarship automatically when we receive your application to study. You do not need to make a separate scholarship application. You will receive confirmation of a scholarship with your offer letter and it applies to all years of study.

EU students who graduate from USW in 2021 with an undergraduate degree and are no longer eligible for home fees but could be eligible for a Master’s Progression Fee Discount of £6,000.
