How to apply
International Undergraduate Merit Scholarships
Newcastle University also rewards the academic performance of INTO Foundation students, with £1,500 scholarships for the first year of study on any undergraduate degree programme at Newcastle University. There are an unlimited number available, and in 2014 we made 124 awards.
To qualify for these awards you must:
- (if applying to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences [HaSS] and the Medical School) achieve 73% overall Academic Weighted Average, and a minimum English for Academic Purposes module of 65, or
- (if applying to the Faculty of Science Agriculture and Engineering [SAgE]) achieve 70% overall Academic Weighted Average, and a minimum English for Academic Purposes module of 65,
- have applied through UCAS and been offered a place on an undergraduate degree programme at Newcastle University for entry in September 2017, AND accepted Newcastle University as your first or firm choice university,
- be assessed as international/overseas for fee-paying purposes.
Sponsored students, and those who have received other scholarships, are not eligible for International Undergraduate Merit Scholarships.
Please note that scholarships, discounts and bursaries awarded by INTO can’t usually be combined. Students will be awarded the reduction that is most beneficial to them.
