Final Transcript: Issued by Oxford Brookes University.
At Oxford Brookes University, a course is called a “Module” while a degree or subject area is called a “course.” Students must take 4 modules per semester. Students MUST have a total of 7-8 modules approved for credit by their home institution, in case of schedule conflicts or cancellations.
Single modules are worth 3.75 semester credits (7.5 ECTS). Students MUST take 30 ECTS per semester. Students who take the normal course load of 4 single modules per semester will earn 12-15 U.S. semester credits. Some modules are “double modules” which means they are worth 2 single modules (total of 15 ECTS or 7.5 U.S. credits per double module).
Modules labeled Level 4 are sophomore or lower division modules. Level 4 modules generally do not have prerequisites.
Modules labeled Level 5 are junior/senior or upper division modules. Level 5 modules are generally for students who are majors in that field.
Modules labeled Level 6 are Honours modules and are open to seniors who are majors in the field – though second semester juniors may be eligible for Level 6 modules, depending on how advanced they are in their degree. Permission from Brookes faculty will be required in order to take Level 6 modules.
Semester 1 is Fall, and Semester 2 is Spring. Modules marked “Semester 1 and 2” are full-year modules and can only be taken by students enrolling for the full academic year. Modules marked “Semester 1 or 2” are offered during both Fall and Spring.
