Helping students to thrive

Our mission to give Newcastle students the best possible opportunities is at the heart of everything we do. Our aim is to give each student the skills and experiences they need to thrive while with us, and in their future.

We don't want any student to miss out on what makes belonging to Newcastle University so special. With your help, we can fund scholarships, society memberships, sports equipment, field trips and more. We can also open the door to future students from all backgrounds by:

  • Working with a network of local schools to encourage pupils to explore their options.
  • Providing Sanctuary Scholarships for students from asylum seeker and refugee backgrounds.
  • Hosting an annual PARTNERS summer school for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Making a difference

Since the Newcastle Student Fund launched in June 2021, more than £370,000 has been donated to support student causes. These vital funds have helped to provide:

  • Scholarships and bursaries for those needing additional financial support.
  • Immediate financial aid to students affected by war and civil unrest, including in Syria, Afghanistan and Ukraine.
  • IT provision for refugee and asylum-seeking students.
  • Bursaries to help take away financial barriers to joining clubs and societies.
  • Support for emergency accommodation for any student who finds themselves without a safe place to live.
