Consultation description 

We are consulting on our proposals for student support and higher education funding, which would:

  • change the tuition fee and maintenance support package for students resident in Wales who are studying at undergraduate or postgraduate level
  • ensure that students with experience of a care setting receive the maximum level of maintenance grant
  • introduce a pilot scheme to explore the practicalities of extending the student support package beyond the UK and EU
  • make changes to current restrictions on equivalent or lower qualifications for the purposes of student support.
