As part of the Northeastern University Global Campus Network NU London offers students a wide range of immersive international opportunities, including the option to study a semester abroad in the USA.

In preparation for its 2023 cohort, the university is developing innovative, impactful, interdisciplinary degree programmes, which combine its emphasis on the humanities with the exploration of complementary disciplines. Furthermore, these new degrees open up opportunities for our students to study in Boston, USA, as part of their undergraduate degree.
