Applications for this year’s supported entry scheme, NU Entry, are now open. Applications will close on Friday 30th April at 17:00.
NU Entry is a structured scheme for students in their first year of sixth form or college studying in England and Northern Ireland, who meet specific academic and circumstantial criteria. Eligibility criteria has widened this year, and details are on our webpage.
Throughout the scheme, students will be provided with the opportunity to develop key skills necessary for successful undergraduate study, receive e-mentoring, and can earn 16 NU Entry points, which are the equivalent to 16 UCAS tariff points when applying to Northumbria University.
Schools and colleges who have had students participate in NU Entry in the past have booked an NU Entry Induction to be delivered in person. However, this year we have produced a short, pre-recorded film. This covers eligibility criteria, timelines, the reflective piece students will have to write as part of the scheme, and our most common FAQs. All students should watch the video before starting their application.
For 2020, the mandatory conference element of NU Entry will be going ahead but will be held virtually in the week commencing Monday 21st June (dates and times TBC). Students must attend one of the available dates to continue their participation in the scheme.
To get started, students and staff can visit our NU Entry webpage now and watch the introductory video, and if eligible, students can start their application!
