Tyne Bridge

Tuition Fees and Finance

Students who complete a full year abroad pay a reduced tuition fee rate to Newcastle University.  

If you are completing a study exchange, you will not have to pay tuition fees to the host institution. This is due to the reciprocal nature of our exchange agreements. 

You can still apply for your normal student loan or bursary for the time you spend abroadYou may also be able to claim money back on travel and other costs related to your placement through Student Finance England’s Travel Grant. Visit our Student Financial Support page to find out more.   

Erasmus Funding

Students participating in Erasmus+ placements can receive funding for their time abroad. Erasmus grants exist to help with the additional costs of going abroad (online/virtual placements are not eligible for funding). The grant is an important contribution to making placements more affordable, but it is not designed to fully fund the Erasmus experience. It is important to remember that your grant may be fully or partially reclaimed if you do not fulfil the requirements of Erasmus funding. These requirements will be shared with you in detail in the Pre-Departure Briefing. 

We recommend that you carefully consider how you will fund your time abroad as early as possible and we strongly advise you not to rely on the grant or the timing of the payments. 

More information about the Erasmus Programme, co-funded by the European Union, is available in the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education.
