Students: Financial Support

You could be entitled to Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) if you study in one of our learning providers.

EMA is for 16 to 18 year olds living in Wales, who want to continue their education after school leaving age. If you're eligible, you could get £30 a week, paid every two weeks.

If you are aged 16, 17 or 18 years old on 31st August 2020 and are continuing to study full time or at least 12 hours per week in school you could be entitled.

EMA is maintained by Student Finance Wales.
