Military Families

As a member of the Armed Forces Covenant, Newcastle University is proud to support those who serve in the military and their families.

To demonstrate the University's commitment to uphold the Covenant, you are eligible for the PARTNERS Programme supported entry route if either/both of your parents/carers are serving or have served in the armed forces at key educational times. You are also eligible for the PARTNERS Programme if you have served in the armed forces. This must be confirmed by your referee at your school or college.

The British Armed Forces consist of:

  • Royal Navy
  • Royal Marines
  • British Army
  • Royal Air Force
  • Regular Reserves
  • Volunteer Reserves
  • Sponsored Reserves

We also take into account your predicted grades and in order to be eligible, your predicted grades must be within one grade of the lower PARTNERS offer.

If neither of your parents/carers have served in the armed forces, you are not eligible based on this criteria. To check if you're eligible under other criteria, return to the eligibility checker page or have a look at the full list of PARTNERS Programme eligibility criteria.
