Northumbria’s Services for International Students
International students have free access to dedicated Student Advisors, as well as the Student Services department. Student Services also offers a meet and greet service, with pickups from Newcastle International Airport to the university. Upon arrival, students receive an orientation and an introduction to staff and students. In a recent Financial Times survey, Northumbria came top for student support.
Northumbria offer courses in most major subject areas such as Engineering, Computing, Sciences, Business, Law, Design, Built and Natural Environment, Arts, Social Sciences, Psychology, Sport, and Health.
The University’s lecturers are experts in their field and passionate about teaching. Many of their courses carry professional accreditation as well as postgraduate courses which require a subject-specific first degree, along with a range of 'conversion' masters for those who are considering a change of direction. Northumbria is the only Business School in Europe with double recognition for Accounting and Business from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB).
I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
