NTU Travel Scholarships

If you're studying, working or volunteering abroad during your course, you can apply for a scholarship funded by NTU and Santander to help with the travel, accommodation, and other necessary costs involved in an overseas visit. These scholarships are competitive as there are only a limited number of awards available. Please ensure that your personal statement is strong and that you proofread it before submitting.

How much is the scholarship?

  • £250 for travel within Europe*
  • £500 for travel outside of Europe

Who can apply?

Fully-enrolled NTU undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The scholarships exclude visiting and incoming exchange students. You must not be in receipt of any other funding or subsidy from NTU towards travel for this overseas project.
