    Sorry for a probably very stupid question, but I was under the impression that everyone applying with Student Finance Wales would be given the £5,100 tuition fee grant from the government, then could choose whether to take out a loan to cover the remaining £3,900. However, when I was completing the form, it asked me whether I would like to be assessed for the grant, which to me implies that I have to meet certain criteria. I couldn't find anything on Google, so could someone please confirm whether everyone will receive this or not? Thanks

    Are you sure it wasn't asking if you wanted the maintainance grant? The tution fee grant should be automatic

    There are criteria, but it's solely based on where you choose to live iirc
