Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

16 semester credits

The University of Westminster, with 23,000 students, is divided into four campuses. Every campus has its own individual character and is home to a significant international student body, its own library and catering facilities. The central campuses are all just a short distance from many famous London landmarks.

Students are encouraged to choose all their classes from one campus; students enroll in up to four classes per semester (only two practical modules per semester). Each class (module) at the University of Westminster is equivalent to 15 U.K. credits or 4 U.S. credits. Study abroad students in London at the University of Westminster usually earn a total of 60 U.K. credits or 16 U.S. semester credits per semester.

Final registration and course confirmation do not occur prior to program departure. Timetables are not available until registration on campus, and courses may fill. As such, students are required to choose four courses, and indicate one alternate per course on the course selection form. Students are restricted to taking two practical modules per semester (e.g. studio based courses). There is an add/drop period at Westminster during the first week of classes. After that time, no changes can be made.

TRANSCRIPTS

Students receive an official transcript from the University of Westminster upon successful completion of program.
