Students in Wales urged to join SFW mailing list

The full-time undergraduate registration service for the next academic year is scheduled to open from March 2022, and students can now register at the Student Finance Wales (SFW) mailing list to receive an email when the application service is online.

SLC advises students to apply as early as possible for their student funding, even if they do not have a confirmed place on their course.
