They are incredibly important to Newcastle University in the way they enrich University life culturally and socially, and they make our campus a more vibrant place to be."
Newcastle University scholarships have been offered in India for many years. This announcement builds on increased activity in a range of areas, including partnership with universities and institutions, such as IIT-Delhi and IIT-Mumbai, research collaboration, corporate engagement, and alumni relations.
The University launched the Vice-Chancellor’s Excellence Scholarships and the Vice-Chancellor’s International Scholarships for the first time in 2018/19 entry to encourage high-quality applicants from around the world, including India.
Indian students at Newcastle University perform well on its programmes and go on to great careers and personal achievements. Scholarship provision for India expanded for the 2018/2019 academic year on these bases.
