Student support applications for higher education
- This is the seventh monthly data point available for applications for 2013/14. In the 2013/14 academic year to date, a total of 59,730 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 and efforts to encourage earlier application may affect percentage changes this early in the cycle.

Since 2006/07, students have been able to apply for non-means tested loans to cover tuition fee costs. From 1 September 2012, students who normally live in Wales and are entering an UK Higher Education Institution (HEI) or college charging variable tuition fees (of up to a maximum of £9,000) will be eligible to receive a Tuition Fee Grant (TFG) of up to £5,535. EU students will be eligible for this TFG if they are studying in Wales.
Welsh domiciled students and EU domiciled students studying in Wales who started their course between September 2006 and August 2010, are eligible for a non-means tested TFG of up to £2,085 (2012/13 level). The grants are not means-tested and are non-repayable.
