Main points

In total, 5,615 students in FE applied for a WGLG in 2018/19, a decrease of 7.1% on 2017/18. Of these 4,785 applications were successful, a decrease of 7.1% on 2017/18. This resulted in £5.1 million being paid out in WGLGs to FE students in 2018/19, compared to the £5.6 million that was paid out in 2017/18. 4,430 (92.6%) of successful applications were from full-time students and 250 (5.2%) of successful applications were from part-time students.

Successful applications equate to 85.2% of applications received; this is the same proportion as 2017/18. The proportion of successful applications from full-time students remains very high at around 98.6%, with the corresponding figure for part-time students at 83.9%. 3,490 (78.8%) of successful full-time applications and 200 (79.7%) of successful part-time applications were from students with a residual income of £6,120 or less, and were therefore awarded the full grant amounts of £1,500 and £750 respectively. 1,870 (42.2%) of successful full-time applications and 55 (22.3%) of successful part-time applications were from students aged 21 or under.
