Life in the UK
If you donâ€™t already live in the UK, then the prospect of moving countries might seem daunting. Our campus is home to students and staff from around 60 nationalities, many of whom have now made Newbold their home. Whether you need to register with the local doctorâ€™s surgery, are worried about learning the currency or need help adjusting to the type of English spoken in the UK, we will help you make any practical, logistical, social or academic adjustments so that you can settle in to life in the UK. This leaves you free to use your time at Newbold to develop the skills, outlook and confidence you need to fulfil your potential.
Studies in the UK
Academic life in the UK might be different to the way you are used to studying. Higher education in the UK tends to focus more on independent study time, student discussion and in-depth research, and less on classroom tests and assessment than you might be
used to. For example, many of our modules comprise a seminar several hours long and the equivalent number of hours of independent study and research. With the support of your lecturers and tutors and our learning support staff, we will provide you with encouragement and guidance to help you through your degree course or programme.
Applicants from the United States CREDIT TRANSFER OPTIONS
Our degree courses are conferred by Andrews University (Theology and Humanities) and Washington Adventist University (Business Studies), which means the credits that you gain at Newbold are easily transferable within the US educational system, and that your degree will be valid and recognised throughout the US. If you would like to transfer from another college or university, our Admissions office will advise you on available options if we do not offer a directly comparable degree course to the one you are studying. 35
