Study Abroad with English

Combine English language study with the chance to take academic modules at Newcastle University. Study Abroad with English is ideal if you want to spend time in the UK developing your English skills, with the opportunity to gain university credit.

  • Academic requirements: One year of study at a university or college overseas.
  • English language requirements: From IETLS 5 or equivalent

Programme structure

Part one

You will take a full-time intensive course in English language and study skills.

Part two

Once your level of English has reached IELTS 6.0, you will have the option to study academic modules at Newcastle University.

You can take up to 40 academic module credits on University courses, choosing modules from a wide range of academic subjects at undergraduate level. The Study Abroad Coordinator will advise you when choosing academic modules. Selection may depend on:

  • what you have studied before
  • your academic and English language levels
  • the availability of places

You will also be able to take In-sessional English classes while you are taking your academic modules. These are worth a total of 20 credits.

Flexible start dates

With three entry points you can join the course at different times in the year, depending on your language level and personal preference.

Courses start in April, June and September.

INTO Newcastle

INTO Newcastle  is based in the heart of our city centre campus. It provides a social programme to help you settle in to life at university and in the UK. There is a dedicated welfare officer at the centre to offer practical information, advice and guidance on any personal issues that may be affecting your studies.

You can choose to live in INTO accommodation or a carefully selected homestay.

You will study in the INTO Centre and in the University. Academic modules are taught in university-style lectures and seminars, and those studying science subjects will use the University’s science laboratories for practical classes.
