International Assignments

Current International Projects

We currently have University staff located in a variety of locations, in particular


Newcastle University International Singapore (“NUIS”) is bridging academia, industry and government to deliver innovative solutions for Singapore’s economic future and a pool of world-class talent. NUIS is an integral part of UK's most established research-intensive universities, Newcastle University.

Since 2009, over 1000 students have graduated from NUIS' seven degree programmes, which are delivered in partnership with local tertiary institutions.

We have a number of academic and support staff based in Singapore. We also have some staff who are on a temporary International Assignment from Newcastle University administered under our international assignment policies listed below.

NUIS joins its sister campus in Malaysia, Newcastle University Medicine (NUMed) Malaysia, in forming a Southeast Asian focal point of Newcastle University’s international expansion.


Build your career and explore the world at NUMed Malaysia.

Our NUMed Malaysia Campus is based in South Johor. It provides undergraduate degrees in Medicine (MB BS) and the Biomedical Sciences (BSc), and opportunities for postgraduate study. The programmes of study are identical to those of Newcastle’s UK-based provision, and lead to the award of the same degrees, conferred by Newcastle University, UK.

We have several members of staff on temporary International Assignment from Newcastle University as well as locally appointed staff at our NUMed Campus.
