£2,750 Fee Discount Scholarship for Extraordinary Masters Students.

At Northumbria University, we embrace tomorrow. We pursue innovative thinking, forge new partnerships, create and exchange knowledge, and develop inventive solutions across a diverse network of subjects.

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our 2020 Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship which gives students the chance to help fund their Masters.

This remarkable opportunity will award outstanding students with a £2,750 fee discount from the cost of a wide range of eligible full-time Masters courses, beginning in September 2020.

To apply for the scholarship, you must accept your offer before 16:00 GMT on Wednesday 15th July 2020.

To be eligible for the Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship, you must:

  • Be a UK, Home or EU student who achieves or has achieved a 2:2 honours degree or higher (or equivalent)
  • Hold an offer for an eligible Masters course (courses listed below)

Selection Process

There is a competitive selection process for this scholarship scheme. Applicants need to apply via online written application; a selection panel will consider all eligible applications.

Applications will be considered on the strength of response to, in no more than 1000 characters: how will being awarded a Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship prepare you for the challenges of a constantly changing world?

If you are currently studying for your degree, you do not need to wait for your final classification before applying.

If successful, the award of the scholarship will be made conditional upon you achieving the required degree classification before commencement of the course.

Successful applicants will be notified once the evaluation panel has met, by 31 July 2020.
