Undergraduate Transitional Bursary Scheme for EU Students 2021/22 APPLY NOW

The UK and Welsh Governments have confirmed that EU students commencing their studies in the academic year 2021/22 will be classified as international students. As such, EU students will no longer be eligible to pay UK fee status or have access to funding through the Student Loans Company.

At Swansea, we wish to support EU students that will be affected by this change in status with an EU Transitional Bursary. The bursary will be awarded as an automatic discount to tuition fees for EU students that join us in the academic year 2021/22 and will reduce the fees to the same level as UK tuition fees for those that are eligible. This will apply for the duration of your course.

  3. Must be starting their first year of study on a course at Swansea University in academic year 2021/2022.
  4. Full-time and part-time courses are eligible.
  5. Applicants will not be able to combine the EU Transitional Bursary with any other scholarship that Swansea University offers.
