The Fulbright Newcastle University Award covers the first year of any master's or doctoral degree programme offered by the university.
Newcastle University is in the top 1% of world universities. Its research was rewarded in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, where Newcastle is ranked:
- 16th in the country for research power
- 3rd in the UK for English research quality
- 8th in the UK for Medical and Life Sciences research quality
- In the top 12 for Geography, Architecture and Planning, and Cultural and Media Studies
- Full tuition waiver
This is intended as a contribution towards general maintenance costs towards the first year in the UK.
In the UK, master's degrees are typically one-year programmes (full-time) and PhDs are three-year programmes (full-time).
