Cost of Living
Supporting you through the Cost of Living
We've created this page to bring together the financial and wellbeing support that is currently available both online and on campus at WGU.
*This page will be continually updated as more information, support and advice is provided.
Support for Welsh Students
The Welsh Government has introduced a support package to address the increasing living costs faced by students during university, which allows them to focus on their studies rather than worry about how to make ends meet.
Looking after your wellbeing
Life at University can be exciting, however during these difficult times, anyone at any time can feel overwhelmed with problems and experience difficulties with their mental health. Sometimes it can feel easier to talk to an impartial person.
