Welsh Assembly Grants for Students
The Welsh Assembly has a number of grants that could help students. (watching his students image by Luisafer from Fotolia.com)

Higher education can prove to be an expensive pursuit, but in Wales the National Assembly has attempted to ensure everyone has the opportunity to attend a college or university. There are three grants that are available to students who require support.

Assembly Learning Grant

This grant allows students living in Wales to claim financial support if they are part of a low-income family, or if they are in a position where going on to further education could place them in financial difficulties.

Unlike a student loan, this grant will never have to be paid back, and if you are claiming benefits, the grant does not count toward your total income, which could distort the amount of benefits you receive.

Eligible students attending a full-time course can claim £975. This will be paid in three instalments--one at the beginning of each term.
