Semester Abroad

Our exciting new undergraduate degree programmes offer you the opportunity to gain international study experience with a Semester Abroad.

Your Semester Abroad enables you to choose to spend the second semester of your second year of your undergraduate degree studying at on of Northeastern University’s campuses in the USA, which include Boston, MA and Oakland, CA.

You’ll enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience, which includes opportunities to expand your horizons and network, engage with another culture, develop your independence, and experience learning in a different style and environment.

Your studies at Northeastern in the USA will count towards your undergraduate degree programme at Northeastern University London, meaning that after you return to Northeastern University London to complete your studies, you can graduate at the same time as the rest of your cohort.
