Meet Jim Fraser, Northumbria's Country Manager for Saudi Arabia

I’m Jim Fraser and I am the Regional Manager for Northumbria University activity in the GCC region.

Jim Fraser

I have travelled to the region quite extensively and have a reasonably good understanding of the various ways in which potential students will look to come to study with us. These include the range of high school study options (Thanawiya, IB, A Levels, CBSE etc) as well as other options for advanced entry and Masters and PhD study.

I have met and work closely with most of the Education Consultants that act as our Agents in the region, so if you have any queries about applying to study with us or life as a student in Newcastle for example, if I can’t answer them then I am sure that I can pass you onto someone that can.

I look forward to meeting you either here in Newcastle or in your home country in the Gulf region.
