Full-time students can receive one of Newman’s scholarship schemes:

Academic Achievement Scholarship
John Henry Newman Scholarship

Academic Achievement Scholarships - Single and Combined Honours Courses (for A Level Students)

Newman will offer Academic Achievement Scholarships of £10,000 over three years for all full-time single and combined honours students on courses taught wholly on the Newman University campus (i.e. not in partnership with another institution) who put Newman as Firm choice on their UCAS application and achieve BBB/ABC (or above) at A2. You do not need to apply for these scholarships, we will contact you in August once your results are known. In order to be eligible for the scholarship you must:

  • Achieve either a minimum of BBB or ABC from three full A-levels (A2) awarded in one year
  • Be studying on a full-time, three year undergraduate course that charges the full tuition fee and must have selected Newman as your conditional firm or unconditional firm choice.
  • Be classed as a Home student by the Student Loans Company.

To continue to receive the scholarships in years 2 and 3 of your course you must pass all modules at the first attempt each year, achieving an average of 60% or above across all modules and progress onto the next stage of the course at the end of every academic year.

Academic Achievement Scholarships - Initial Teacher Education students

Ten Academic Achievement Scholarships worth £2,000 over three years are available to students on undergraduate Initial Teacher Education courses. The academic criteria for students being eligible for a scholarship are the same as for single and combined honours students (above). However as the number of scholarships is limited to ten, achieving the grades does not guarantee a scholarship. Once you have been made an offer of a place at Newman, please download and complete the application form to apply for the scholarship.

To continue to receive the scholarships in years 2 and 3 of your course you must pass all modules at the first attempt each year, achieving an average of 60% or above across all modules and progress onto the next stage of the course at the end of every academic year.

Scholarships will be awarded on the following criteria in preference order:

  • ABB+ or equivalent (see the scholarships qualification document below) and the highest number of A or A* at GCSE
  • Most GCSEs at A*
  • Attended a school with the lowest proportion of 5 A*-C grades at GCSE
  • Lottery of remaining applicants equal on all the above criteria

We expect most applicants will qualify for a scholarship, but a worked example of how the scholarships are distributed if there are more applicants than available scholarships is in the application form at the bottom of the page.

The flowchart at the bottom of this page also explains how we will distribute Academic Achievement Scholarships to ITE applicants.
