Franchised Degree Students

Information for students studying on a franchised degree course

Students studying a franchised degree in partnership with Swansea University are classed as Swansea University students.  This means that you have access to all available support from the University despite not necessarily being based at one of our campuses.


Students studying a franchised degree can apply for funding from the usual sources, such as Student Finance.  You can also apply for applicable grants and bursaries from the University.  For more information on funding available, please visit our student loans and grants page.

The fund cannot be used towards tuition fee payment. Eligibility to apply does not guarantee an award, but any award made does not have to be re-paid.
