Want to master your future? When it comes to postgraduate study, the time is now.

Northumbria University, Newcastle, is thrilled to be offering its Vice-Chancellor’s Masters Scholarship Scheme this summer. Northumbria is offering 100 scholarships worth £2,750* off selected full-time on campus postgraduate courses starting in September 2016. Students will also be eligible to apply for a government loan of up to £10,000 to support postgraduate study - meaning there has never been a better time to continue your education.

Postgraduate education will take you and your skills to the next level. Whether you want to get the real world experience you need to progress in your career, the research skills to excel in your discipline, or simply want to build your confidence and pursue your passion, a Masters qualification will take you there.

Northumbria’s Masters courses are co-created with students and employers to ensure you graduate with the skills and attributes needed to succeed. With 96% of Northumbria’s Masters students going on to work or further study within six months of graduation, you can look forward to a bright and exciting future.

Northumbria’s Masters courses are taught by world-leading experts in their respective fields. In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, the national assessment of research quality, Northumbria was rated top 50 in the UK for research power. The University showed that it had made a major step forward, reporting the largest rise in research rated as world-leading and internationally excellent by the REF.

Northumbria nearly tripled its share of research rated in these categories, clearly demonstrating the world-class academic staff it has working across its multidisciplinary research themes. Whether you want to make the next research breakthrough, further enhance your career prospects, or simply continue to study the subject you love, Northumbria offers a range of exciting postgraduate courses.

MBA graduate Yvonne Gale was already a chartered accountant when she came to Northumbria to further her career through postgraduate study. She is now CEO of NEL Fund Managers Limited and a non-executive director of a number of the boards of our funds and our investee businesses.

She said: “I was drawn to the structured approach within the MBA. As a part-time student with a demanding career, I felt the structure was needed to ensure I succeeded.

“The academic staff put significant effort into making the study material relevant to the students using practical examples. Years later, I’m still greeted with enthusiasm by staff who remember my studies. I loved the library too – the knowledge available was phenomenal.”

MSc Multidisciplinary Innovation graduate Jonathan Otter, meanwhile, chose postgraduate study at Northumbria to help launch his career.

He said: “It fitted exactly what I was after and, after speaking to previous students and members of staff, I knew it would be the best opportunity to expand my industry learning. The academic staff are extremely approachable and helpful.”

Jonathan added: “Postgraduate study was an incredibly worthwhile investment - 100%! I raised and sacrificed everything to come here and it has paid off tenfold. Being on a Masters of this calibre allows an interaction and volume of learning that is what you make of it. Get out of it what you put in - the rewards are epic.”

Northumbria’s Vice-Chancellor Scholarship Scheme has been created to help more students move to the next level. To apply visit our scholarship webpage here. The scheme closes on 1 August 2016.
