London South Bank University – Semester Course Offerings

*COURSES (MODULES) ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. All students MUST get a total of 8 modules approved by their academic advisor, in case of changes in course availability or scheduling. That way, if a class is full or cancelled, or if there are schedule conflicts between your top choices, you’ll have back-up classes you know your school will accept. When you pre-register for classes (this happens after you’re accepted), you will have to list a total of 8 possible modules, in order of preference.


All ASA students must take one required core course, plus 3 additional modules of their choosing. For the required core course, you may choose from: London: A City of Change (20 CATS / 4 U.S. semester credits) or Made in London (20 CATS / 4 U.S. semester credits). Students attending the full academic year will be required to take the core class only during the Fall semester.  You must get a total of 8 modules approved by your home institution (core course + 7 additional modules of your choosing) in case of cancellations or schedule changes later on.

Most modules offered at LSBU are worth 20 CATS, which is equivalent to 4 semester credits. (CATS is the academic credit system used in the UK. 5 CATS = 1 U.S. semester credit.) However, some modules are worth 15 CATS (3 semester credits). We do not recommend you enroll in a module worth only 10 CATS.

Modules are organized by levels. Level 4 is sophomore, Level 5 is junior, and Level 6 is senior. Please note that Level 6 modules are academically challenging and are recommended only for junior and senior students who have already covered the topic in depth.
