David Willetts has welcomed the signing of a new partnership agreement between Northumbria University, Newcastle, and BINUS University in Indonesia.

BINUS INTERNATIONAL and Northumbria University have worked together since 2008. During that time staff and students from Northumbria have travelled to Indonesia to run workshops, take part in placements and for research projects. And the signing marks the next stage of this strategic partnership with the launch of BINUS-Northumbria School of Design (BNSD).

Northumbria University is one of Britain’s largest modern universities, with around 32,000 students, including approximately 3300 international students. Renowned for the excellence of its teaching, as well as for preparing students for the working world, Northumbria also provides research opportunities for professional reflective practice. Northumbria’s campus is located in the popular student city of Newcastle; a wonderful city known as the capital of England’s North East, it has a dramatic location on the River Tyne near the east coast and lies at the heart of one of Britain’s most beautiful and historic regions.
