We’re thrilled to share that Northumbria University London ranked Highly Commended in the category of Outstanding Contribution to Enhancing the Overseas Student Experience in London by London Higher.  These awards were open to all London Higher Education Institutions and the outcome reflects the fantastic work from all our colleagues involved in supporting the international student experience from pre-arrival through to graduation.

Dr Guy Brown, Pro Vice Chancellor of Northumbria University London Campus comments “Students join us at Northumbria University London Campus from over 92 countries, we are delighted to have been recognised by London Higher for the pre-arrival work we do. As part of our extended induction and throughout the year, we support our students both academically and in their wider personal and professional development. Putting the student at the heart of what we do is key to our philosophy of learning and support at Northumbria University and this commendation is very special to us.”

Northumbria University London Campus is home to 5000 students from 92 countries studying on a range of programme types including full time, part time, degree apprenticeship and distance learning.

Key to student onboarding, academic and career success is our four-stage support package delivered in partnership between the university and QA Higher Education. This begins six weeks prior to a student commencing their academic studies, continuing throughput their period of study.  Interventions include:

  • Our preparing for study programme
  • An extended welcome and induction
  • Embedded course-long Academic, Personal, Professional, Research and Employability Skills module
  • Personalised support offer from our Academic Community of Excellence (ACE) Team

In 2022/23 over 4200 students accessed this personalised support model, with subsequent feedback noting 96% overall satisfaction and positive impact on their academic confidence and achievements.
