2). International Family Discounts (IFD)
The University offers partial discounts to close relatives (husband, wife, brother, sister, mother, father, son or daughter) of students/graduates, who have been assessed as ‘international’ for fees purposes, and who wish to pursue their studies at Newcastle University or are currently studying here.
The value of these awards is 10% of the tuition fees for each year of the degree programme.
Students may only apply for a discount if they are registered as a student at the University or after they have been offered a place to study on their chosen degree programme and have been assessed as international for fees purposes.
Where two family members are intending to start their studies in 2016 or are currently studying at the University, one will be able to apply for an IFD.
Each discount award will be tenable for the normal duration of the programme, up to a maximum of three years for full-time postgraduate research students and four years in the case of students studying for an Integrated PhD, subject to annual review.
Renewal will be conditional upon satisfactory academic progress by the discount holder. The discount is no longer valid if a student pays writing-up fees or if a student does not pay international fees or is not making satisfactory progress.
Each award is worth 10% of the tuition fees per annum for the normal duration of the degree programme payable into the student’s tuition fee account.
