Scholarships at UON

We are committed to providing opportunities and rewards to the best and brightest applicants. With this in mind, we offer generous scholarship schemes that provide merit-based financial support for International students and EU-domiciled students.

The University gave me a scholarship based on my academic achievements, it was certainly a great help and one of the biggest motivations for me to come to the UK to study as I came from a low-income family. The University of Northampton has plenty of opportunities and support to encourage young people to go to university.” – Khanh, Vietnam.

What scholarships we offer

The University of Northampton International Scholarship

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.

The International Graduate Scholarship

The International Graduate Scholarship offers a 30% fee discount to graduates of the University of Northampton who studied on campus in the UK. 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. Top Up graduates with a second class degree will also be eligible for 30% graduate scholarship.

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.
