Choosing your modules

To browse the available modules and make your selections, you will need to follow the steps below.

  1. Download the application form.
  2. Download the module catalogues from the table below.
  3. Choose 6 modules from the Faculty module catalogues below for each semester and list them on the application form in order of preference – 3 preferred modules and 3 alternative modules, in case your top choices are full or otherwise unavailable. Note: If you are studying for the full year, you must choose 6 modules for each semester, ie 12 in total.
  4. If you are studying for one semester, check that your preferred module choices do not exceed 60 UK credits (12 US credits/12 Japanese credits/30 ECTS). This normally equates to three modules, but there are exceptions.
  5. If you are studying for a full year, check that your preferred module choices do not exceed 120 UK credits (24 US credits/24 Japanese credits/60 ECTS). This normally equates to six modules, but there are exceptions.
  6. If you are selecting Level 5 or 6 modules, check in the module catalogues whether the modules have pre-requisites. You will not be expected to have completed the precise pre-requisites, but you must have studied a similar course or module in your home country.
  7. If you are selecting any Media, Arts and Design or London Studies modules, check the "Media, Arts and Design portfolios and London Studies information" instructions below on portfolio submission and maximum modules you can take.
  8. Get approval for your module choices from your home institution, to ensure you have approval for credit transfers.


For practical modules at Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design, evidence of capability in each discipline you are interested in (demonstrated through a portfolio) is an important part of the admissions process and must be submitted at the time of application.

For details of what your portfolio must include, please download the portfolio submission guidelines for study abroad students PDF.

In addition, students are restricted to taking:

  • a maximum of 2 practical modules in each semester from Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design
  • a maximum of 1 module from the London Studies Portfolio
