Welcome Canadian Flag

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 Canada and we currently have over 50 students from Canada at Newcastle.

Some of the more popular programmes at undergraduate level amongst students from Canada are Law and Medicine.  At Postgraduate level, Business, Biomedicine and Cultural and Heritage Studies are popular.


We are pleased to offer the Newcastle University North America Scholarship award with a value of £2,500, payable toward the first year of tuition fees. This is available to high-achieving Canadian students applying for postgraduate Master's degree programmes commencing in September 2016.
