Experience all the fun that the city voted best for students 4 times in 6 years* can offer you this summer.

Our Summer School includes field trips across all modules and an exciting social programme to help you learn about our region whilst enjoying your summer and making friends from all over the world. Some the of the highlights of the Summer School include both Welcome and Departure Events with meals provided; a trip to Northumberland (home to the most Castles in the UK), and its stunning coastline; and module trips that will enrich your academic experience and allow you to learn about historic and present day ways of living in our fantastic region.

As one of the UK's largest and most respected modern universities, Northumbria University offers you an unrivalled experience through the quality teaching and exceptional facilities at our city campus.  We are located centrally in Newcastle upon Tyne, a truly student friendly city, with low living costs and the people who are known as the nicest and most welcoming in the country; the Geordies!  Combined with our exciting module offer for the summer, Newcastle has enabled Northumbria to grow into the outstanding international university it is today.

We know it can be overwhelming to arrive somewhere new for the first time and we want you to feel at home when you are here with us.  We pride ourselves on being knowledgeable and approachable and provide 24/7 support during your stay.  Our staff are trained to the highest standards of excellence in our service and are experienced travellers themselves and will make sure you have the best possible time! 

I wish you the very best in your stay with us and trust you will return many more times to Newcastle.  We always enjoy welcoming our students back.
