You'll take a full credit load of 16 semester hours of credit during each semester.
In the British education system, students attend university for three years and only enroll in courses directly related to their degree. City may request that you submit syllabi and course descriptions from your previous work to demonstrate that you have satisfied any pre-requisites.
The courses available to study abroad students are located in the Academic Programs information on the City University London website.
When selecting courses, it is important to pay attention to course levels:
You will be pre-approved for courses based on your online course registration form; it is important to list 6-8 courses on your form. Prior to arrival, your Program Manager will provide you with the list of courses in which you have been enrolled. At this time, students will be responsible for reviewing course timetables and submitting course change requests to their Program Manager.
There is a drop/add period for a limited number of departments upon arrival. If you make any changes it is your responsibility to inform your home institution.
If your enrollment is conditional upon entry into a specific course or courses, it is very important that you indicate these requirements at the bottom of the online course registration form on your Arcadia Passport.
