New support package recognises crucial role of Welsh universities in COVID recovery

In response to today’s Welsh Government announcement of additional funding for universities and colleges, Professor Julie Lydon, Chair of Universities Wales, said:

“This vital support for the university sector arrives at a crucial moment and signals a strong recognition of the important role our universities will play in our recovery from COVID-19 across Wales. This statement demonstrates Welsh Government’s determination to provide stability for our universities and will be reassuring for students who have consistently rated the student experience in Wales as excellent.

“We are committed to ensuring that universities, working with our partners across the post-16, business and charity sectors, are able to deliver the change and benefits that Wales needs as we build a new future.”
