Scholarships

Each year, Newcastle University offers a large number of partial scholarships to international students from all over the world.

All international students who are offered a place to study on any of our degree programmes are normally able to apply for at least one of our central University scholarships.

Funding opportunities for international students are available at different levels including Faculty and School funds, and University and external awards.

The British Council also has a range of scholarship schemes and the Education UK website has a funding database.

All University scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit, so you must possess (or expect to receive) excellent results.

We hold a formal University Reception each year for our scholarship winners.

Financial Assistance Fund

A small amount of funding is also available to help international students who experience unforeseen financial difficulties.

The Financial Assistance Fund, however, is limited and cannot provide assistance to students who arrive without sufficient funding for fees and basic living costs.
