Oxford Brookes University – Semester Course Offerings

At Oxford Brookes University, a class or 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 your home school, in case of schedule conflicts or cancellations.

Single modules are worth 7.5 ECTS or 3.75 semester credits. (1 ECTS credit = 0.5 semester credit.) Students who take the usual 4 single modules per semester will earn 15 semester credits in one semester. Some modules are “double modules” which means they are worth 2 single modules (so, a total of 7.5 U.S. credits per double module).

Modules labeled Level 4 are sophomore or lower division modules. Level 5 are junior/senior or upper division modules. Level 5 modules are generally for students who are majors in that field. Level 4 modules normally have no pre-requisites or fewer pre-requisites than Level 5 modules. Level 6 (Honours modules) and Level 7 (postgraduate modules) are not open to study abroad students.

Please click on the links below to see modules offered for the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 semesters. You can then click on the blue module code for a description/syllabus of the module and a list of pre-requisites. To the right of the page, it will indicate which semester the module is offered. Please remember that 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 staying for the full academic year. Modules marked “Semester 1 or 2” are offered during both Fall and Spring.

For courses below marked **, students are accepted on a case-by-case basis and must receive pre-approval from Oxford Brookes University in order to take modules from that course. Courses requiring approval include: Architecture, Engineering, Equine Science, Exercise Sciences, Fine Arts, and Robotics. (Electronic portfolio will be required for Architecture and Fine Arts.)  For students wishing to take modules within the courses marked **, Oxford Brookes University will review your application and get back to us with a decision.

Oxford Brookes University reserves the right to review your transcript and check that all pre-requisites have been completed before confirming enrollment in any module.
