International Family Discounts (IFD)

Provided by: Newcastle University


We offer discounts to encourage relatives of our current international students, and past international graduates, to pursue their studies at Newcastle University.

International Family Discount

Each award is worth 10% of the tuition fee (per annum), for the normal duration of the degree programme payable into the student’s tuition fee account.


This discount is only available to students studying at the Newcastle city campus.

The University offers partial discounts to close relatives (husband, wife, brother, sister, mother, father, son or daughter) of students and graduates, who have been assessed as ‘international’ for fees purposes, and who wish to pursue their studies at Newcastle University in 2015-16 or are currently studying here. 

Students may only apply for a discount if they are registered as a student at the University or after they have been offered a place to study on their chosen degree programme, and have been assessed as international for fees purposes.

Where two family members are intending to start their studies in any academic year or are currently studying at the University, one member will be eligible to apply for the International Family Discount (IFD). 

The value of these awards is 10% of the tuition fee for each year of the degree programme.

Please complete the application form electronically and in accordance with the IFD regulations, which are provided at the end of the application form.
