ABOUT CARDIFF ASPIRE

Cardiff University are very aware of just how challenging this year has been for their students, and for those of you with disabilities in particular. There have been many difficulties to overcome, not least of which has been remote working. 

A message from Cardiff University:

"Whilst we appreciate that many of you will have received DSA, this will not necessarily have been sufficient. The University is concerned to ensure that you have the right equipment and resources to study from home and so we have allocated a significant proportion of the recent hardship funding we have received from the Welsh Government to support this.

We have partnered with the JS Group, a company with a very long history of providing educational resources to university students, to allow you to purchase a wide range of products that will support your learning."

NB: If you are eligible for the scheme then the University will have notified you automatically by e-mail. We have allocated those selected £350 to spend and you will shortly be contacted by the JS Group with further information and log-in details to your account. This is a cashless bursary to support students with their learning requirements and needs to be spent on the University of Cardiff Aspire Website.

Here's a link from the University that helps you to make sure you have the right equipment, applications, and access to resources. We strongly recommend you read this before ordering devices:

Rydym yn ymwybodol iawn o ba mor heriol y bu'r flwyddyn hon i'n myfyrwyr, ac i'r rhai ohonoch sydd ag anableddau yn benodol. Bu llawer o anawsterau i'w goresgyn, ac nid lleiaf ohonynt, bu gweithio o bell. 

Er ein bod yn gwerthfawrogi y bydd llawer ohonoch wedi derbyn DSA, ni fydd hyn o reidrwydd wedi bod yn ddigonol. Mae'r Brifysgol yn awyddus i sicrhau bod gennych yr offer a'r adnoddau cywir i astudio gartref ac felly rydym wedi dyrannu cyfran sylweddol o'r cyllid caledi diweddar a gawsom gan Lywodraeth Cymru i gefnogi hyn. Rydym wedi partneru gyda'r JS Group, cwmni sydd hanes hir iawn o ddarparu adnoddau addysgol i fyfyrwyr prifysgol, i'ch galluogi i brynu ystod eang o gynhyrchion a fydd yn cefnogi'ch dysgu. Rydym wedi dyrannu £350 i bob un ohonoch i'w wario a bydd y Grŵp JS yn cysylltu chi cyn bo hir gyda mwy o wybodaeth a manylion mewngofnodi i'ch cyfrif. 

Bwrsariaeth heb arian parod yw hwn i gefnogi myfyrwyr 'u gofynion dysgu ac mae angen ei wario ar Wefan Aspire.

Dyma ddolen gan y Brifysgol sy'n eich helpu i sicrhau bod gennych yr offer, y cymwysiadau a'r mynediad cywir at adnoddau:
