Welsh Government announces new funding for Welsh students

The Welsh Government has today announced that it will be funding a new bursary scheme to attract Welsh students to do their master’s degrees in Wales.

The scheme aims to increase the number of Welsh graduates who remain in or return to Wales to undertake a master’s degree in STEMM subjects.

Welsh students starting a postgraduate course this autumn can receive up to £17,000 towards their studies and living costs, the most generous student finance package in the UK.

As part of the catalogue of courses on offer here at Aberystwyth University, we offer a 1-year MRes course in Parasite Control specifically focusing on parasites and the diseases that they cause which would be eligible for funding under the new scheme.

More information and application forms for this years MRes course starting in September can be found here.

Applications for postgraduate student support for the academic year 2019 to 2020 are now open via the Student Finance Wales website.
