Global Studies for Study Abroad

This Global Studies Programme offers visiting students a chance to explore the interconnected ways in which societies across the globe are changing together, and the power relations that shape these changes.


Faculty from Newcastle University’s School of Geography, Politics and Sociology have developed a special programme for inbound Study Abroad students.

For a single semester or full academic year (your choice) you will study how:

  • global institutions use the UN Sustainable Development Goals to shape economic and political interventions across the world
  • war, conflict and climate change lead to movements of displaced peoples across countries
  • social justice needs are changing alongside global cultural norms that influence who we can be and how we can live

Students on the Global Studies Programme will live and study alongside British students and will receive support from a dedicated Personal Tutor.   The School of Geography, Politics and Sociology is home to a diverse and friendly community of staff and students, committed to world-leading research and excellent, innovative teaching.

We recommend taking three 20 credit classes per semester to account for a full-time course-load.
