The Welsh Government has recently published its long-awaited response to the Diamond Review it commissioned to look into student funding in Wales.
• Any changes are expected to come into effect for those starting undergraduate or postgraduate courses from 2018/19 onwards
• There may also be opportunities for funding at postgraduate and research level
The Welsh Government will now consult on the proposed changes, with a view to the new arrangements being in place for students starting university in September 2018. The changes will be subject to Treasury approval and the ability of the Student Loans Company to put the new funding system in place.
