Northumbria University

The Fulbright Northumbria University Award covers the first year of any master's or doctoral degree programme in art and design.

Northumbria University is a research-rich, business-focused, professional university with a global reputation for academic excellence.

It is based in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne, which is regularly voted the best place in the UK for students.

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

The Northumbria School of Design covers Industrial, Fashion, Communication and Innovation Design.

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 and cultural contexts.
