In basic terms there are two options for students to take part in an international mobility experience; as part of their degree in the ‘sandwich year’ (usually between 2nd and final year) or in the summer after the academic year has ended on an International Short Programme. 

We have partners all over the World the majority do teach in English however there is the opportunity and something the team encourage to learn the native language during their studies.

Students must consider the cost of the programme fees are covered by the tuition fees paid to Northumbria if this is taken during the sandwich year but there are still costs that should be considered for example travel, visas, vaccinations, insurance, accommodation etc. 

Current students should submit an enquiry via the 'Help and Support' section of your Student Portal. You are current student if you have recently enrolled or have been sent an email about enrolment. To access your Student Portal you will need to have enrolled on your programme first.
