Grants for Wales’s poorest students are to be cut by around 15 percent.

The Welsh Assembly government is slashing its assembly learning grant and special support grant by £600 for the next intake of university students.

Meanwhile Newport University in Gwent is to have 20 percent fewer student places next year.

A cut in funding from the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales will cut the annual intake of students.
