Northumbria University is a vibrant university in northeastern England, with 38,000 students studying in eight different schools, including Arts and Social Sciences, The Built and Natural Environment, Design, Health, Community and Education, Computing, Engineering and Information Sciences, Law, Life Sciences (which incorporates Applied Sciences and Psychology and Sport Sciences), and the Newcastle Business School
The Study Abroad office at NU maintains a group page on Facebook where you can ask questions and meet other students planning to study there. Nicole Thompson, who studied at NU in Fall 2012, created a video about her time in Claude Gibb Hall, one of the residence halls where NU’s international office places TCNJ students.
TCNJ students will have a variety of interesting academic options from which to choose. Most students take the British Colloquium course that integrates field visits to various parts of northern England and Scotland into a classroom-taught course about the UK. Courses in the UK are called “modules,” and a 10-credit module is usually worth 0.75 TCNJ units. Students may take anywhere from 40-60 Northumbria credits, or three to five TCNJ units, in a study abroad semester.
Students will live in student residences on the NU campus. (Most students report that they have lived in Claude Gibb Hall, which features single rooms and two meals per day.) For more information about NU student residences, check out the NU accommodations website.
