Welcome Flag of Kenya

We are delighted that you are considering studying at Newcastle and hope to welcome you to the University in the near future.

The University has strong links with Kenya and we currently have 20 students from Kenya at Newcastle.

Some of the more popular programmes with Kenyan students at undergraduate level are Biochemistry, Zoology, Agriculture, Information Systems, Media, Communication and Cultural Studies, and Accounting and Finance.  MEd and MRes programmes are popular at postgraduate level.


We are pleased to offer the Newcastle University East Africa Scholarship award with a value of £3,500, payable towards the first year of tuition fees. This is available to high-achieving Kenyan students applying for postgraduate Master's degree or undergraduate Bachelor's degree programmes commencing in September 2016.
