Northumbria International Scholarships 2009/10 and 2010/11 - Northumbria University

We are delighted to announce details of the range of scholarships available in the 2009/10 and 2010/11 academic years. In the current academic year more than 500 students from over 20 different countries have been awarded a Northumbria University International Scholarship.

Most courses at Northumbria University have an intake in September, but a number also have an intake in January or later in the year. Scholarships are available for both intakes.

In most cases the amount of scholarship given will be in the range GBP 500-1000. If you are awarded a scholarship, your tuition fees in your first academic year of study will be reduced by the relevant amount. Scholarships cannot be extended for subsequent years of study.

Eligibility and Selection

You will be eligible for consideration if you have overseas (non-EU) fees status, and don't currently reside within the UK (if you are unsure please click here to find out your status - site will open in a new window). Applicants for all levels of full-time study at Northumbria’s Newcastle campuses will be considered (NB this does not apply to English Pre-Sessional Programmes).

Selection is based primarily on outstanding academic achievement, although, other factors may be taken into account, such as your level of English proficiency and any professional or non-academic achievements. Financial need cannot and will not be taken into consideration. Scholarships are not awarded automatically.

When the University receives your application form for one of our programmes, you will automatically be assessed for scholarship eligibility. There is no separate scholarship application to complete so it is important that you submit all relevant information with your initial application. You will usually be notified of any award at the same time that you are offered a place at the University.
