Details of outcome
We want your views on proposed changes to student support and higher education funding.
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.
