Northumbria University works closely with more than 500 partner universities, colleges and schools across the world. Our partnership outreach sees us partner with education institutions across all six major continents with partners in countries including USA, Canada, Australia, China, Japan and India as well as nearly 200 partner organisations in Europe through the Erasmus PLUS programme.
Northumbria University works in partnership with these organisations primarily through one of the following frameworks:
Memorandum of Understanding – An initial agreement with a view to further collaboration
Letter of Recognition – An official recognition of a qualification to lead onto progression to a Northumbria University degree programme
Bilateral Exchange – A student exchange agreement
ERASMUS Plus – The EU Funded student exchange programme
Articulation Agreement – Official recognition that students from the partner organisation who have met the qualifications can progress to advanced entry onto Northumbria University degree programmes
We strive to offer an exciting portfolio of partner organisations to suit all specialities while bringing together learners with opportunities which will develop skills, inspire and change lives.
