Overview

Newcastle University is proud to support equal access to higher education and is pleased to offer Sanctuary scholarships consisting of full tuition fee support and a bursary for living expenses for applicants wishing to study at the University. The scholarships have been designed to enable students from asylum-seeker and refugee backgrounds to progress to higher level study.

Eligibility Criteria

1.The following categories of applicants can apply under this scheme:

a. asylum seekers and refugees
b. children of asylum seekers and unaccompanied asylum-seeking children (e.g. children migrants under 18)*

2. Applicants must be living in the North East of England (Tyne and Wear, County Durham, Northumberland, Cleveland and North Cumbria) at the time that they apply for consideration under the scheme.*
