Tuition Fees

Government Grants

Some students are entitled to means-tested, non-repayable grants that are intended to help with living costs. To find out if your son or daughter is eligible, visit www.studentfinancewales.co.uk or www.gov.uk/studentfinance

Loan Repayment

Student loans only have to be repaid once your child is earning in excess of £25,000*. Students are required to pay 9% of their income above £25,000, e.g. if your child is earning a salary of £30,000, this would mean a payment of approximately £35 per month. 

*It has been confirmed that this level will be increased from £21,000 to £25,000 from 2018/19 for students applying to Student Finance England and Wales, but is still awaiting parliamentary approval.

Scholarships and Bursaries

Swansea offers a range of scholarships, including up to £3,000 for Academic Excellence and £1,000 per year for Sporting Success, along with income-related bursaries. For more information, please visit: swansea.ac.uk/scholarships

Part-time and Holiday Work

Many students take part-time work during term time and vacations. There are many opportunities to work on campus, and the city offers a good deal of seasonal work for those seeking to supplement their loans. 

Maintenance Loans

Maintenance loans are designed to help with expenses such as accommodation and food. These are dependent on a variety of factors, including household income and where the student chooses to study. Maintenance loans are typically paid to the student in three instalments throughout the year.
