Studying Abroad at Northumbria
The Northumbria University Study Abroad Programme gives you an unmissable opportunity to spend an unforgettable semester or two in England. Northumbria University is based in Newcastle upon Tyne, a popular University city bustling with life and cultural activity, located in one of England's most beautiful and historic regions. Our campuses offer you a welcoming environment, a taste of British university life and a varied academic programme that meets your interests and academic needs.
The Study Abroad Programme is open to any undergraduate student who wishes to follow a credit-based programme over one or two semesters. On the following pages you will find further information about the programme and how to apply.
Northumbria defines study abroad students as falling into one of three categories depending on their application route. While the core elements of the programme remain the same for everybody, there may be slight variations which are explained below.
Study Abroad Student - From a Partner Institution
A student from one of our Study Abroad Partner Institutions who pays the Study Abroad Programme Tuition and Accommodation fees to their home institution, in order to study at Northumbria University for a semester or an academic year. The Colloquium on British Culture module* is included in the fee structure and therefore is considered a core module for Study Abroad Students, and will be added to your programme of study automatically.
Study Abroad Student - From any other institution
A student from an institution who we may not have an agreement with, who will pay the Study Abroad Programme Tuition and Accommodation fees directly to Northumbria University in order to come study for a semester or a year. The Colloquium on British Culture module* is included in the fee structure and therefore is considered a core module for Study Abroad Students, and will be added to your programme of study automatically.
Non-fee paying Exchange Students
A student from one of our Exchange Partner Institutions (Georgia, Clarkson, ECU, RMIT) who pays their home institution their normal tuition fee and then spends a semester or year studying at Northumbria. A Northumbria student will in turn study at the partner institution for a semester or year. Exchange students pay their Accommodation fee directly to Northumbria. These students are required to pay a supplementary fee if they choose to take the Colloquium on British Culture module*
*The Colloquium programme includes visits to:
- Durham Cathedral
- The Theatre Royal in Newcastle, to see performances by the Royal Shakespeare Company
- The Lake District
- Castles at Warkworth, Dunstanburgh and Alnwick and Lumley Castle
- Hadrian's Wall and Roman Fort.
