Northumbria Current Students - application process

Book an appointment with the Study Abroad team

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation the Study Abroad team are currently working from home, so no on-campus 121 sessions are available.

  • 121 sessions will resume the week commencing the 12th October 2020, and can be booked online using the button below
  • All sessions will be conducted online via Microsoft Teams - please ensure that you have downloaded this to your phone/tablet/PC and tested it prior to the meeting
  • Once your booking has been processed by the team you will receive an Outlook invitation to a Teams appointment
  • The appointments are 10 minutes long, and you can book as many of these as you need through the semester - please only book one at a time though, as slots are limited and you may find that one session is all you need.  If after the first session you find you need another, you can then book again
  • If you find you are unable to attend a session, please let the team know as soon as you can so that the slot can be released to another student
  • Attendance of 121 sessions and preparation are used as key factors in the study abroad allocation process, so it's important you attend when you have booked
  • Please download the study abroad handbook and pre-application checklist from the Resources section of the Study Abroad website and work through the first section of the checklist prior to attending your 121 session
  • Online appointments by Smoothbook

Form Return While Abroad & Erasmus+ Grant Application

During your semester/year abroad there are various administrative tasks that need to be undertaken to ensure that the mobility period runs as smoothly as possible. We have combined all of these forms into one easy-to-complete online form which you can access from the Study/Work Abroad portal, linked below. You will also use this online form to apply for your Erasmus+ grant if you are studying/working in the EU.

Remember that all forms for both study and work placement need to be submitted within 5 days of arrival at your host University/Placement Provider - if you foresee problems meeting this deadline please contact the Team to let us know.

Please ensure that you open the portal using either Chrome or Firefox, as the forms will not work in Internet Explorer and some versions of Safari.

If you are on study exchange you will already have a username and password for the portal from when you applied for your study location. If you have forgotten your password please use the ‘Forgot your password' link in the bottom left hand corner of the login screen.  Please do not register again as a new user, as the forms need to be linked to your previous application.

If you are on work placement you will need to register with the portal using the Registration boxes on the right hand side of the login screen.

When signing up to the portal please ensure that you use your Northumbria University e-mail address.  Applications coming from external e-mail addresses (e.g. Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo) will be rejected and deleted.

Your Northumbria University e-mail address should have your full name format (e.g. joe.bloggs@northumbria.ac.uk), not your username (e.g. W12345678@northumbria.ac.uk).  Applications coming from NU usernames will also be rejected and deleted as they will not work with secondary processes in the system.

 Please ensure that you add the e-mail address noreply@nu.moveon4.com to your 'safe senders' list in your Northumbria Outlook mail settings BEFORE signing up to the portal so that you receive all notifcations from the application system.

If you have any difficulties signing up to the portal or are unsure about which form you need to complete, please contact the Exchanges & Study Abroad team on er.study-abroad@northumbria.ac.uk
