A monthly report showing number of applications received and grants awarded.

Key points

  • This is the twelfth, and final, monthly data point available for applications for 2013/14. In the 2013/14 academic year to date, a total of 61,480 applications had been received for student support in Wales, up 6 per cent on the 2012/13 figure. Changes in timing of the application process may have affected percentage changes seen in the cycle as the comparison with last year had changed monthly.
  • 52,870 applications had been received for Tuition Fee Loans, up 5 per cent on 2012/13.
  • 37,195 students had applied for Tuition Fee Grant.

We have recently consulted on the future method of releasing these data. As a result, future monthly data will be published only through StatsWales. Please see para 6 of the Notes section in the release.
