Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

Up to 16 semester credits

The University of Westminster, with 20,000 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 have three options for course credit: 1) students may enroll in 3 classes per semester for a total of 12 U.S. credits; 2) students may enroll in 2 classes plus an internship module (including a Professional and Personal Skills Development module) for a total of 12 U.S. credits, or 3) students may enroll in 4 classes for a total of 16 U.S. credits (this option carries an additional fee).

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.
