Study abroad module information

You can choose three or four modules per semester. Please check with your home university for confirmation of how many modules you need to take while you are here.

Registering for classes

Shortly after the application has passed in the summer, you will receive a link inviting you to apply for modules. Please be patient as you will not be able to select the modules, until you receive the link.

You will be asked to nominate eight choices in order of preference in case there are timetable clashes.

The timetable will be available to you once you have completed online enrolment, normally 2/3 weeks before your arrival in the UK.

More modules will be added over late spring and early summer.

If you require more detailed information on the syllabi, please contact the Study Abroad team who should be able to help you.

If you wish to study level 5 or 6 modules for any of the courses listed below you will need to have already completed level 4 or equivalent:

  • Psychology
  • Strength and Conditioning

Please note: Due to changes in the teaching delivery following COVID-19, some of these modules may be withdrawn last minute. Please bear this in mind.

Please note: that modules are subject to change at any time.  Courses being validated may also be subjected to a change in the syllabus.

Changing classes

You have the option of changing your modules until the end of the second week of teaching, subject to availability.

You will also have a chance to meet with the lecturers to ask questions about the modules and make sure they are the correct level for you. We recommend that you consider your module choices carefully when you fill in the module choice form.

Module credits

Each module is worth 20 credits, equivalent to 10ECTS. Most US institutions award four or five credits per 20 St Mary's credits, but please check with your home university as this varies by institution.

Transferring credits back to your home university

It is your responsibility to confirm that the modules you take at St Mary’s will meet the academic requirements at your home university.

If you are studying at one of our partner institutions, we will send your home university a transcript listing the credits and marks for the modules you took at St Mary’s. If you are not studying at one of our partner institutions, we will send your transcript to the home address you provided during online registration.

Semester 1 transcripts are available after February and Semester 2 transcripts are available after July.

Timetable

You will have access to your timetable after you complete online registration, which is normally two to four weeks before the start of the semester. Your timetable will be available in your Outlook Calendar.
