Northumbria University Alumni Discount - 2024/25

This information is for continuing Northumbria students and Alumni applying to study a Postgraduate degree in the academic year 2024/25.

The world is changing, and at Northumbria we stand ready to tackle tomorrow's challenges head on. We want to support our students to achieve their ambitions, to support their creativity and curiosity. 

Northumbria offers a generous 20% tuition fee discount to final year students who choose to continue their studies or those who return to Northumbria to gain a Masters or Postgraduate Research qualification.

If you have graduated or are expected to graduate this year with a Full Undergraduate Degree, Masters, or Postgraduate Research qualification from Northumbria University (or Newcastle Polytechnic), you will automatically receive a 20% tuition fee discount (pro-rata if your course is more than one year) on most Masters and Postgraduate Research courses. 

This discount applies to Full and Part-Time students (including the Post Graduate Certificate in Education) and is available to students studying at our Newcastle and London campuses or via Distance Learning.

Eligible students also include those who have previously studied at Northumbria in the UK as a Study Abroad or Exchange student, or those who have completed a Northumbria degree outside the UK via a Transnational Education (TNE) partnership, subject to successfully graduating at the level mentioned above.
