  • During term 3 you will be charged 100% of the total academic year’s fee.

    Scholarships for UK & EU Students

    If you cease or pause your programme of study* and have been awarded a scholarship, Northumbria will cancel the scholarship award as soon as notified. If an instalment of the scholarship award has been paid, then the remainder will be cancelled. Northumbria will not ask to be reimbursed for instalments that have already been paid to you.
