GEMS - Northumbria Scholarship 2021/22


2021/22 GEMS Northumbria Scholarship

All self-funding Undergraduate students from GEMS Schools will be eligible for this unique GEMS Northumbria Undergraduate Scholarship.  This is available to all new self-funded GEMS students with overseas fee status who join an Undergraduate Degree course at Northumbria University in 2021/22.  The scholarship will provide students with a discount on tuition fees worth a total of £8,500 over three years of academic study.  There is no additional scholarship application required but students must satisfy the normal admissions requirements.  The scholarship is not available for any study at Foundation level (Level 3).  If students progress from a Foundation Programme (Level 3) to one of our Undergraduate Degree programmes and meet the normal requirements they will be granted the GEMS Northumbria Scholarship.  

If you join us in the first year (Level 4) of an Undergraduate Degree, we will offer you a £4,500 fee discount.  You will receive a further £2,000 fee discount in your second and your third year.
