Northumbria University will continue with plans for the autumn 2020 programme. This will be achieved through a combination of on-campus study and online course delivery. International students who are unable to travel due to Covid-19 travel restrictions can begin their studies online and join the campus when it is safe to do so.
There is a full accommodation deposit guarantee which is refundable for those unable to travel. The university is also aware students may not be able to book English language tests, so it is accepting a wide variety of tests and exemptions.
The International Foundation Programme includes six pathway options. These are Applied Science, Art, Design and Media, Business and Law, Computing, Engineering and Humanities and Social Science. The International Year One Programme is now offering both 12-month and nine-month study options for prospective students.
The university is continuously reviewing the current situation and updating applicants and students where possible.
