PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Loyola University Maryland and Newcastle University have expanded their long standing partnership in the establishment of the Loyola University Maryland Center at Newcastle University. Loyola established a relationship with Newcastle University in the mid1990s. Loyola will be offering students from American universities across the US the opportunity to study abroad through The Center beginning spring 2014, allowing American undergraduate students the chance study in the British town, Newcastle upon Tyne. Because students will be studying through Loyola University Maryland, they will receive a Loyola transcript with American credits and grades, making the credits easily transferable to other American universities. This is a fully packaged program that includes Loyola tuition and fees, housing, airfare, and many other program benefits. Newcastle has world-renowned Science/Biomedical Schools as well as excellent Business and Humanities schools. There are about 20,000 students at Newcastle University with an international population of approximately 5,000 students. This program works best for Science majors but is open to students in all degree programs.
