International Scholarships

We are committed to providing opportunities and rewards to the best and brightest applicants. With this in mind, we offer three generous scholarship schemes which provide merit-based financial support for International Students from outside of the EU.

The University of Northampton International Scholarship

The University of Northampton International Scholarship Scheme is a merit-based scholarship that provides up to a 30% reduction in tuition fees. All full-time Undergraduate and Postgraduate taught courses delivered on campus fall within the scheme and you will be considered for a scholarship on the basis of your academic achievement. You do not have to apply for this scholarship separately from your initial application and you will be informed of the outcome in your offer letter.

The International Graduate Scholarship

The International Graduate Scholarship offers a 50% fee discount to graduates of the University of Northampton. This scholarship is available to you if you are wishing to study a Master’s course and have achieved a second class degree from a three or four year Bachelor’s degree.

The Santander Masters Scholarships

The Santander Masters Scholarships are funded by Santander and aim to assist academically able students from some Latin American and European countries to study for a taught Master’s degree with us. We award five scholarships per year which are worth £5,000 in the form of a discount in tuition fees.

For further information on eligibility and applying for the Northampton Santander Masters Scholarship please visit the main scholarship pages.

Governmental Scholarship Schemes

We are a proud participant in a number of UK and overseas government scholarship schemes. These schemes, the Chevening Scholarship and Commonwealth Scholarship, provide opportunities for students otherwise unable to afford the full costs of an overseas education. We are listed on a variety of overseas government sponsorship lists. If you are seeking to study with us under one of these schemes,  check the Ministry of Education website for your home country for eligibility criteria.

Chevening Scholarships

Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. The programme makes awards to outstanding scholars with leadership potential from around the world to study postgraduate courses at UK universities. For further information please visit the Chevening Scholarship website.

Commonwealth Scholarships

The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (CSC) in the UK awards over 900 scholarships and fellowships for postgraduate study and professional development to Commonwealth citizens each year. For further information, please visit the Commonwealth Scholarships website.
