Financial Support

Financial support is available for your child through the form of bursaries and scholarships which will make managing money at University easier and reduce your worries.

Our support staff are always on hand to guide your child in the right direction if they are worrying about finances and are low on money. We are able to help if things get particularly difficult for them financially, or if they are looking for advice on a student finance issue. We offer a number of support packages for students depending on academic achievement or personal financial circumstances.

The cost of living in Newcastle is lower than most major cities in the UK, so your son or daughter will get more for their money living in Newcastle. Check out the video below to find out more.

After having issues with student finance, the hardship fund was a real relief.
