University of Northampton International College


International Scholarship Scheme

We are delighted to announce that the University of Northampton International College (UNIC) and the University of Northampton (UON) are now able to extend the International Scholarship Scheme to students who progress from UNIC onto the UON.

The University of Northampton International Scholarship Scheme is a merit-based scholarship that provides up to a 30% reduction in tuition fees for every year of your study (excluding placement years). 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 awarding of the scholarship has some key criteria related to Grades, Attendance and paying Tuition Fees on time:

Additionally, to be eligible for the scholarship students must have started a programme of study at UNIC at one of the following intakes:

  • September 2022
  • January 2023*
  • September 2023*
  • January 2024*
  • May 2024*

Upon progression to UON students have the opportunity to be awarded the corresponding percentage fee reduction against the subsequent year of UON fees:

Overall pass grade achieved in UNIC Programme % reduction in following year UoN fees
75% or higher 30%
70% - 74% 20%
65% - 69% 10%

In addition to the above merit based criteria, progressing students must also meet the requirements of the UoN's student debt management policy, including that:


  • If you receive an offer to study with us, it is part of the terms and conditions that you will need to pay a deposit of £5,000 (GBP) tuition for your first year of study when you have accepted your offer. A £5,000 (GBP) deposit will be required for each year of study before enrolment. This will be deducted from the total tuition fee due each year. The remaining balance will be due in 2 further instalments by 15th January & 15th April  for September starters and 15th May & 15th August for January starters.
  • These requirements are not flexible

To qualify for the discount progressing students must also meet the requirements of the UON's student debt management policy and meet their tuition fee payment criteria.

The final criteria is Attendance, with students needing to have met a minimum of 80% attendance at UNIC.


You do not have to apply for this scholarship separately from your initial application and you will be informed of the outcome in your University of Northampton offer letter.
