  • Your module choices are NOT guaranteed so you MUST request up to 10 modules or 4 module cluster sets, as appropriate, IN ORDER OF PREFERENCE, so that we can make alternative arrangements, should your first choices not be available.
  • Students must discuss all modules with their home institutions BEFORE submitting module requests. When students submit the module request form we will assume you have permission from the home institution.
  • Please also bear in mind that we may not be able to exactly match your modules and if you have very specific requirements for your home institutions course and are unable to be flexible with your choices, we may not be able to accommodate your modules in an exchange.
  • Study on Level five (2nd year) modules will require evidence of prior experience of studying the subject at university level.  Level six (final year) modules are restricted to students who are majoring in that subject area.
  • Modules are either worth 10 UK credits or 20 UK credits.  Students will take between 40 – 60 UK credits per semester as instructed by their home institution. We use the following credit equivalency: 20 UK credits = 10 ECTS = 6 US credits
  • Please note that once all allocations are CONFIRMED no further module changes will be able to be made.
