Module catalogue

The module catalogue details the classes available for you to study during your exchange. You may only choose classes from the subject area/faculty covered by the Exchange Agreement. For example, students from a partner university where an agreement exists in business will not be allowed to take classes outside the Business School except English for Academic Purposes.

The module catalogues are in downloadable pdf format.

Choosing the correct module level

  • Level 4 modules – first year
  • Level 5 modules – second year
  • Level 6 modules – third and final year

American, Canadian, South Korean and Japanese universities consider their second year as equivalent to the first year of a British university undergraduate degree. Students should discuss with their home institution which level is appropriate to them.

How many modules should I take per semester (credits)?

At Westminster a full-time student typically registers for four modules per semester (60 UK credits). International (non EU/EEA) students requiring a visa to study in the UK must be registered as full-time students and take a minimum of 52.5 UK credits per semester.

One module = 15 UK credits, which is equivalent to:

  • EU students: 7.5 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits
  • US students: 4 credits

For further information on credits and how modules are graded or assessed, visit the Credit Transfer page. Students generally will not be permitted to take more than 60 UK credits per semester (four modules).

Please note: the module catalogue is issued on the express condition that all matters in it are subject to change. In particular, while the University will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver the courses and programmes of study and other educational services as set out in this handbook, circumstances may change, and the University reserves the right at any time to vary the content and delivery of courses, to change the location of courses and classes, to discontinue or combine courses, or to discontinue services, if such action is reasonably considered necessary by the University.
