Course Credit

  • Students enroll in a total of 60 UK credits per semester.
  • Per Roehampton University, 10 UK credit classes are considered equivalent to 3 semester credits/4 quarter units and 20 UK credit classes is equivalent to 4 or 5 semester credits/6 or 7 quarter units.

  • Classes are lecture style with a seminar (smaller group) following the lecture. Focus is on individual study.
  • According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

Course Level Recommendations

  • ISA offers course level recommendations for the courses listed in the Roehampton Module Catalog. Please note that the course level recommendations are based on the Roehampton module level classifications of a 1, 2, or 3 level, which correspond with the three year bachelor's degree cycle. Courses classified as level 2 and level 3 are considered upper division and recommended for juniors and seniors with 3000- and 4000-level of experience in the subject. These Roehampton and ISA recommendations are intended to facilitate the determination of course equivalencies by advisors and credential evaluators at participants' U.S. home institutions.
  • If a student does not have the necessary pre-requisite experience, Roehampton will not approve them for the course. Students will then provide additional module choices.
