Every Northumbria student has the chance to study abroad, would you like to spend part of your student journey studying or working in another country?

Studying in a foreign country is an exciting, challenging and ultimately rewarding experience. It will boost your personal development, increase your confidence and provide you with once in a lifetime experiences.

Types of Studying Abroad

Erasmus +

The Erasmus + exchange programme offers excellent opportunities among EU member states. We have a range of partners across the EU and, in partnership with the British Council, are able to offer a wide range of financial assistance to our students studying in Europe. The majority of our Erasmus partners teach in English (please note that it is mandatory for students on language and International Business with Language programmes to be taught in the local language) however there will be the opportunity to learn a second language should you wish.

Bilateral Exchange

A bilateral exchange refers to studying abroad at one of our partner institutions with whom Northumbria exchange a specified number of students. For example, if two students from RMIT Melbourne come to study at Northumbria for a semester then two students from Northumbria will be able to study at RMIT Melbourne for a semester. As part of an exchange agreement you will pay your fees to Northumbria. There are several scholarships available to students studying abroad outside the EU.

Easter/Summer Opportunities

Easter and summer opportunities across the world are available for all students. These usually take place at a Partner Institution and last around two weeks. There is a fee for most of these programs.
