In order to provide an even more extensive list of opportunities to UIUC engineering students, the College of Engineering has partnered with IIE/Global Engineering Education Exchange (GE3) to enhance its offerings.  Programs listed under the GE3 option are exchange programs and run at the same cost as other IPENG exchange programs.  Please read the following information carefully.

GE3...

  • is an international exchange program for engineering students at member institutions.
  • overseas members include a consortium of western European universities plus selected individual institutions in other world regions, including Asia, central and eastern Europe and Latin America.
  • provides opportunities for students to receive academic credit for courses taken at an overseas institution and practical training in a foreign setting for summer, semester or academic year
  • has been recognized and supported by the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Education.

HOW GE3 WORKS

While you are initially applying to Newcastle through the UIUC application, be sure to indicate this school as your first choice in the "Potential Placement Interest" section of the GE3 application.   You should list at least two schools in this section.   Member schools are listed on the GE3 website with more specific information.  

To find out more about the Newcastle and other universities (search page for GE3 schools) offered through GE3, go to the GE3 websites indicated and you will find informaton on each university including:
  • engineering disciplines available
  • languages of instruction
  • start and end dates for academic study
  • a link to each university's home page which includes housing information

APPLICATION
UIUC students will complete the required UIUC documents on this site and will also apply to the GE3 program through a similar program at the following website:  http://www.iie.org/programs/globale3   All required materials/documents must be uploaded to the UIUC application.  IPENG will upload any required supporting material to the GE3 site from your UIUC application.  Students will be notified by IIE and UIUC of acceptance to a particular school at which time, you can accept or decline.

IMPORTANT  Students will be able to address a specific region/school by responding to a specific question in the application called "Potential Placement Interests" or use a box to indicate any institution or area of interest.  AGAIN-FINAL PLACEMENT DETERMINATION RESTS WITH THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENCY - IIE!  Efforts will be made to provide students their top choices or something similar!
