Main points

In total, 5,305 students in FE applied for a WGLG in 2019/20, a decrease of 5.5% on 2018/19. Of these 4,435 applications were successful, a decrease of 7.3% on 2018/19. This resulted in £4.9 million being paid out in WGLGs to FE students in 2019/20, compared to the £5.1 million that was paid out in 2018/19. 4,085 (92.2%) of successful applications were from full-time students and 325 (7.3%) of successful applications were from part-time students.

Successful applications equate to 83.5% of applications received versus 85.2% in 2018/19. The proportion from full-time students remains high at around 97.0%, with the corresponding figure for part-time students at 80.0%. 3,035 (74.3%) of successful full-time applications and 235 (72.9%) 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. 1,625 (39.8%) of successful full-time applications and 75 (22.8%) of successful part-time applications were from students aged 21 or under.
