  3. 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.
  4. If you are selecting any Media, Arts and Design modules check the information on Media, Arts and Design portfolios below for information on portfolio submission and the maximum number of practical modules you can take.
  5. Get approval for your module choices from your home institution, to ensure you have agreement for your credits to transfer.
  6. Please note that it is not possible to choose specific day or time slots for modules as these will be allocated automatically by the timetabling system. Teaching takes place at the University of Westminster from Monday to Friday between 9am to 9pm.

Please be aware, you are applying for acceptance on to the study abroad programme, not specific modules. The study abroad module catalogues list the modules available at the time of application, and is subject to change before enrolment on to the programme.

Once enrolled onto the programme, the University of Westminster endeavours to ensure all module content and delivery remains unchanged throughout the period of your studies. However, where changes are unavoidable these will be conducted in the least disruptive way. Please refer to your Study Abroad Student Terms and Conditions for details on how and when courses may change.

Full details can be found on our terms and conditions page.
