2019 Terms and Conditions

In order to qualify for the EU Excellence Scholarship, applicants must:

  • Make an application to Northumbria University for a full-time Postgraduate Masters course at the Newcastle upon Tyne campus.  Students joining Masters programmes at the University’s Amsterdam and London campuses are not eligible for this scholarship.  

  • Disclose all relevant qualifications in their application form.  If students have eligible qualifications that are not listed, we cannot determine your eligibility and you will not be considered as a candidate for the scholarship.

  • Achieve the Country Academic Requirements, as well as all other terms and conditions of their University offer.

  • Be eligible to pay Home fees.  This scholarship is not available for students who are eligible to pay international fees.

  • Be ordinarily a resident in an EU member state outside of the UK. This scholarship is not available for European students who are already a resident in the UK when they apply to study at the University. For the avoidance of doubt, the address shown on your application will be used to confirm your residence status.

  • If a student is awarded a scholarship through another scheme operated by the University (e.g. Vice Chancellors Scholarship) then they will no longer be eligible for the EU Postgraduate Academic Excellence Scholarship.  

Important Information

  • There is no separate application form for this scholarship; eligible EU students will be automatically considered.

  • Payment will be in the form of a fee waiver and no cash alternative will be offered.

  • If you owe the University tuition fees or have other outstanding debt, then payment will not be made until the debt is cleared and you may be withdrawn from the EU Postgraduate Academic Excellence Scholarship scheme.

  • If you take a leave of absence or defer your place at Northumbria University before the scholarship has been paid, the scholarship offer will be withdrawn.

  • If you decide to leave your course after the scholarship payment has been made, the University will not make efforts to reclaim the amount.

  • Recipients of the scholarship may be asked to support the University's wider EU recruitment activities. Arrangements for this will be negotiated with individual students as required.

  • Northumbria reserves the right to change the format of the Academic Excellence Scholarship, amend these terms and conditions or withdraw the Academic Excellence Scholarship at any time. Notice of any changes will be given on Northumbria’s website.

Please Note: ALL SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AWARDED AT THE DISCRETION OF THE UNIVERSITY AND ELIGIBILITY DECISIONS ARE FINAL
