Northumbria Current Students - application process

Book an appointment with the Study Abroad team - mandatory requirement

A mandatory requirement for studying abroad is to attend a 121 session with the Study Abroad team who will be able to advise you on how the programme works, available locations, finance, support etc.  To book a 121 appointment with a member of the Study Abroad team please click on the 'Book now' button.

These are informal sessions with the Team to discuss your options and answer any questions you have about the Study Abroad programme and processes.

Before attending your session please download the Study Abroad Student Handbook and associated pre-application checklist - try and complete as much of the first section of the checklist as you can before attending.

As well as attending a meeting with the Study Abroad team you must also talk with your guidance tutor within your faculty to ensure that they are aware of your plans to go on exchange.

After the appointment you will be e-mailed a code which you can then use in your application form.

Please only book one session at a time - do not book two adjacent slots or slots a few weeks apart as the subsequent ones will be deleted.  Once you have attended your first session you may then book for a subsequent one should you need further advice or guidance.

 

How to Apply

The main application period for applying to study abroad in 2020/21 will open on the 1st December 2019 and close on the 20th January 2020.

Once the process opens you will need to sign up to the application portal, following the link below.  Ensure that you follow each of the bullet points below to sign up to the portal:

  • Ensure that you are using Google Chrome or Firefox as your web browser - the portal and subsequent application form will not work correctly with Internet Explorer or Safari.
  • 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 without notification
  • 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.
  • 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.  Failure to add this address to the 'safe senders' list will result in all notification e-mails going into your junk mail folder.

Once you have followed all 4 bullet points above, you can register on the application portal.

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
