This funding is in addition to the postgraduate funding scheme in place for Welsh students in academic year 2022/23.
In principle, all of the University's taught master's courses are eligible for this bursary as long as a student can study an element through the medium of Welsh. Many departments within the University are currently developing and offering Welsh-medium or bilingual modules within their courses, so you need to discuss the possibilities with the appropriate Program Director. A student may study a module (s) through the medium of Welsh or submit their master's level dissertation in Welsh in order to gain eligibility for this bursary.
Note: Students funded by other government funding such as Social Care Wales, NHS/HEIW, DHSSPS or Research Councils (KESS II) will not be eligible.
