Northumbria University

The Fulbright Northumbria University Award covers the full cost of tuition and stipend for a one- or two-year Master's, or a three-year PhD in arts and design courses.

Northumbria University is a research-rich, business-focused, professional university with a global reputation for academic excellence ranked in the Top  400 THE World Ranking, and Top 30 in The Guardian 2021 best UK Universities.  

Northumbria University is based in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne, regularly voted the best UK student City for students, small enough to be familiar, safe and homely, but big enough to live! 

From creating fine art to art management; from animation to film, theatre and television, through to teaching, the Northumbria Arts Department is a dynamic and stimulating environment to study a wide range of courses. 

The Northumbria School of Design covers a range of master's courses in communication, fashion, innovation, and design management. 

With alumni including Apple’s Sir Jonathan Ive, principal designer of the iPad, iPhone and iMac, the Northumbria design community examines design in the context of use, beauty and social, cultural and sustainable contexts.
