Academic Scholarships: Northumbria University

Award information

Academic Scholarships are open to UK students who graduated with a 2.1 or first class honours degree and enrol on a taught masters postgraduate course at Northumbria University.

Funding details

Graduates with a first class honours degree are offered a 10% tuition fee discount. Graduates with a 2.1 honours degree are eligible for a 5% tuition fee discount.

The award is offered in conjunction with the Alumni Discount, so a Northumbria graduate with a first class degree would be entitled to 30% discount, and an alumni with a 2.1 would receive 25% discount.

Funding eligibility

Academic: Applicants must have a first class or 2.1 honours degree from a UK institution.

Residency: Open to UK students only.

Exclusions: Those studying via distance learning do not qualify for this award; the discount applies only to courses studied on campus.

Students studying programmes funded by the NHS, or undertaking professional law programmes who are in receipt of a package deal are not eligible.

Other: Students on postgraduate teacher training courses who do not qualify for government training bursaries are eligible for this award.

How to apply

No separate application is required; the discount will automatically be awarded if the criteria are met.
