Study Abroad and Exchanges

Exchanges Outside Europe

Exchanges Outside Europe

Our non-EU exchange programme gives you the opportunity to study at one of our partner universities outside Europe for a semester or full year. Our partners are located across North and South America, Asia and Australia.

The deadline for 2017-18 applications is coming soon! Speak to your school coordinator as soon as possible for details. The deadline for school nominations is 27 January.

Your time spent abroad is an integral part of your degree at Newcastle, it is not a gap period. You transfer the credits gained at the partner university back to Newcastle.

We have a growing list of partner universities located outside of Europe. Each partner is linked to a specific subject area or faculty. The partners you can study at will depend on the subject you are studying at Newcastle.

Each partner has a specified number of places for Newcastle students. Demand for places can exceed the number of places we have available. If this situation occurs, participants may be chosen based on academic achievement.
