Student Financial Support

Research Funding


A study opportunity to allow undergraduates who have research potential with experience of research and to encourage them to take further postgraduate study.

For more information about Research Scholarships, take a look our Research Scholarships and Expeditions website.


As a student, you can benefit from our 50-year track record in expeditions.

Do you want to organise an expedition next spring or summer?

Newcastle University is particularly keen to encourage those organised by students to carry out research at destinations outside the UK.

We have a proven record of this kind of activity stretching back over 50 years. We are currently recognised by the Royal Geographical Society as one of the leading UK universities for student expeditioning.

Find out more about how you can apply for funding and take part in expeditions.
