Financial Assistance Available to help pay course fees
Funding is available to help pay for your studies and brief details are given below. Contact us to check your eligibility or request an application form.
Fee Waiver* You must be new to Higher Education (HE), do not have qualifications equal to or higher than a HNC/HND or other undergraduate credit-bearing HE award - this includes a UK or an overseas HE qualification (unless you are upgrading your qualification) and meet at least one of the conditions below:
- Your family is in receipt of Universal Credit or Income Support or income based Jobseekers Allowance or Housing Benefit or Pension Credit or Council Tax Reduction or Working Tax Credits.
- You are in receipt of Employment and Support Allowance or Personal Independent Payment or Severe Disablement Allowance or Disability Living Allowance or Attendance Allowance or Incapacity Benefit or Carer’s Allowance.
- You are a registered job seeker, and have been so for a continuous period of no less than six weeks prior to the date of application for fee waiver.
- Your sole family income is through Department for Work and Pensions benefits.
You must provide DACE with official documentary evidence of your entitlement on application for example a letter from Jobcentre Plus confirming your name, address and benefit entitlement.
Students should be Welsh domiciled. Should your circumstances change and you are no longer entitled to a fee waiver, you should advise DACE whereupon the remaining proportion of the tuition fee may be payable. A student that initially undertakes fewer than 30 credits but subsequently adds to this during the academic year will be ineligible. Fees may be waived to the full cost of the tuition fees of the module, or a maximum of £875 per student, whichever is the lower amount. Funding is not available for courses provided on a cost recovery basis, for assessment or examination costs or to repeat modules under any circumstances.
*Funding for this scheme is not indefinite and could be withdrawn prior to students achieving a qualification.
The conditions of this scheme are subject to change without notice.
DACE Hardship Bursary This is available to those who are required to pay full fees (f) and not eligible for any other financial support. This is based on your household income and we may require you to provide evidence of this. It covers up to 50% of the course fee and is a maximum of £200 per student, per academic year. Please contact us for an application form. Bursaries are at the discretion of the Department. Please note that the bursary only applies to full fee costs of £200 and does not apply to our concessionary fee of £40.
Payment by Instalments You are able to pay for courses of 20 weeks and over in two instalments. Students pay half the course fees at the start of the course and the remainder at 10 weeks. Please contact us before the course starts to arrange this.
