For 2017/18 and 2018/19 entry full-time students can receive one of Newman’s scholarship schemes:

John Henry Newman Scholarship
Article 26 Scheme Scholarship

Academic Achievement Scholarships - Single and Combined Honours Courses (non ITE)  (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) in 3 full A-levels.
N.B. Scholarships are not available for the Sport Coaching Science and Tournament Golf degree.

You do not need to apply for these scholarships - we will contact you in late August/September 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.  This scholarship does not apply to initial teacher education courses, for details on the academic achievement scholarship for those courses see below. 
  • Be classed as a Home student by the Student Loans Company.
  • Students may only receive a maximum of one full-time scholarship.
  • Students who decline their place at Newman or select Newman as their insurance choice are not eligible for a scholarship.
  • Students studying a second degree are not eligible to apply for these scholarships.
  • Newman reserves the right to withdraw scholarships if, in the opinion of the University, the student has behaved in a way which could damage the reputation of the institution, or fail to remain in good standing with the University.
  • If any award is discovered to have been obtained through the presentation of inaccurate information the student will be required to repay any scholarship received.

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 (limited to 10, apply via the application form below)

Ten Academic Achievement Scholarships worth £2,000 over three years are available to students on undergraduate Initial Teacher Education courses. The eligible academic criteria for students for a scholarship are the same as for single and combined honours students (see 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:

  • Highest number of grades 7, 8 or 9 at GCSE (previously A or A*)
  • Most GCSEs at grade 9 (previously A*)
  • Attended a school with the lowest proportion of five 9-4 grades at GCSE (previously A*-C)
  • 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.
