Thank you for speaking to a Northumbria Student

At Northumbria University we believe that everyone with the potential to go to university should have the opportunity to achieve their goal. We are committed to Higher Education Without Barriers and your help will ensure no one is left behind. 

Through the Higher Education Without Barriers Fund, we are providing a range of financial initiatives, mental health and wellbeing services and community-based projects

Since the launch of the campaign in January 2022 we have raised over £500,000 and provided support to over 500 students across the Northumbria University community. This would not have been possible without the generosity of our fantastic alumni community and friends. 

As a member of our alumni community, you have the power to transform the lives of current and future generations of Northumbria students. By providing direct and essential financial support in the form of scholarships and hardship grants, you can help to ensure that participation and progression in higher education is more achievable for academically talented students, regardless of their social or economic circumstances.

And that’s why you received a call from a member of our student team. We hope you enjoyed speaking to them and are we are extremely grateful that you’re interested in making a gift to support our Higher Education Without Barriers Campaign. 

Our brilliant team of students love hearing about your stories and experiences at Northumbria and should you require any further information from them about our campaign, please email
