Our Partner universities

Newcastle University, United Kingdom


Study in the North of the UK
Student life was rated two times as best in Britain in various surveys. Newcastle University, as well as the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, is one of the "Russel Group" universities dedicated to academic excellence at the highest level of research and teaching.  With 20,000 students, the university is big, but not huge. The Business School supports around 2,800 students. Currently, tuition fees are quite low for Anglo-Saxon standards - but it is still to be seen how things will develop in the next few years. We point out that the NcU is a larger university; administrative processes sometimes take more time and are more complex; this is also reflected in the availability of contact persons and services.

Deadlines for submitting application documents to the International Office:

Please note that the deadlines vary between partner universities - it may take a while before you hear from the partner university.


Proof of your English language skills is not required for the application, but you must take a language test during the orientation week. Depending on the results, you might receive requirements or recommendations for English courses to be attended.

Application Process

We have an ERASMUS partnership with Newcastle University and a certain number of exchange places per semester. You can apply for these places.

The ERASMUS application procedure is divided into two steps: 

Step 1: Application to EBC University

You apply to us for a place at university and for the ERASMUS scholarship. Please register at the International Office and hand in the following documents:

  • Letter of motivation in English (one page maximum); include up to two alternative ERASMUS partners in the last paragraph of your cover letter, in which you would be interested if we had to cancel your first request.
  • Performance record of the EBC University (via the virtual campus)

The best applications will be selected from all applicants of the EBC University, it counts academic achievements, language skills and the quality of your motivation letter, in which you show that you have dealt with your desired university.

We will inform the successful students by email and ask them to explicitly accept their place. If you accept the place, we will nominate you at the partner university and only then will you apply with the regular application documents for the university, see step 2.

If you have received a rejection, you will automatically be placed in the procedure for moving up to the alternative universities of your choice or we will try to offer you an alternative. We will then send you an offer by email. Once you have accepted the offer, we will nominate you with the partner and only then will you apply to this university with the appropriate documents (see step 2 below).

Step 2: Application to the partner university

After the EBC University has nominated you at the partner university, apply there. The host university reserves the right to decide on your admission. At the NcU you apply online. You will probably have to upload the following documents:

  • Application form
  • Proof of English language skills (DAAD)
  • Performance record of the EBC University
  • Personal Statement
  • Reference letter from a teacher
  • Passport copy
  • Module selection (in consultation with IO)

The Erasmus Learning Agreement will be sent to you by the International Office upon successful nomination at the partner university. However, you will not submit the agreement to the NcU until you have registered.

Tuition fees

We have an ERASMUS partnership with this university. You can apply for an ERASMUS place (Attention - the number of ERASMUS places is limited).

For the participation in the ERASMUS program, an administration fee of 750,-€ is due. In this case, no further tuition fees will be charged at the ERASMUS university in which the student is enrolled.


Learning Agreement
Along with your application, you submit a Learning Agreement (LA) on which you enter courses or modules amounting to at least 20 ECTS credits that you would like to take. In Europe, the number and credit value of the courses varies, so make sure you get precise information. Overseas, where there are fewer contact hours in the study system, this usually corresponds to 4 courses (this also has visa relevance - in many cases you are only considered a full-time student!). The International Office and the Dean's Office will confirm your selection and ask for corrections if necessary. The LA is the basis for the recognition of courses at the EBC Hochschule and is therefore binding. In host countries whose national language is not taught at the EBC, you must attend a language course. Language courses cannot, however, be recognised within the 20 ECTS credits mentioned above.

Transcript of Records
Your Transcript of Records, the semester abroad, proves that you have successfully completed the course. The average of your achievements is converted according to the modified Bavarian formula. 20 ECTS are hereby recognised and are included in the overall grade of your studies. At least 20 ECTS must be successfully completed during the semester abroad for recognition at the EBC Hochschule. Newcastle University Business School expects you to choose at least 60% of your courses from the area of "business & accounting finance". You are relatively free to choose the remaining 40%, including psychology.



Students who are nationals of one of the EU countries do not need a visa for Great Britain, but you should check this with the UK Council for International Student Affairs, as there are special regulations for Romanian and Bulgarian citizens. All other applicants must apply for a visa, even if they live in one of the EU countries. If you are staying in the UK for less than six months and do not want to work there, apply for a student visitor visa using the VAF1D form. You should then ask your host university for a "student visitor visa letter", which you should enclose with your visa application.


For students who study at Newcastle University for less than a year we do not offer accommodation in halls of residence. However, the Accommodation Service will be happy to help you find suitable private accommodation. The Accommodation Service also offers an apartment and flat-sharing badge, which you can use. Further information can be found here. The weekly rent per week is between 40 - 80 pounds (~ 50 - 100 euros), depending on the residential area and the type of house.

Among the students popular residential areas are Fenham, Heaton, Jesmond, Sandyford and Spital Tongues, which are also the most central residential areas (more information on the areas can be found here).

Liberty Living
The accommodations are modern, well furnished and affordable. There is a private bathroom and a kitchenette where you can cook. The apartments are centrally located so you can easily reach everything from there. The special thing about Liberty Living is that you can plan short and long stays. The minimum length of stay is one week. In addition, there are great offers of versatile apartments for every budget. Apartments start at around £30 per day.

Liberty Living is not only available in Newcastle, but in many other cities in the UK. More information can be found on the website.

Cost of living
The University recommends an average cost of living of about 780 pounds per month (~ 950 euros, as of Sept. 2010) and publishes a recommendation for each academic year on the Internet. Further information can be found here.
