  • Make sure your credits transfer back for credit with your home school – this is your responsibility.
  • Please be flexible about courses – we can’t guarantee placement in specific courses.
  • Please review your course choices with your academic or study abroad advisor, and submit the online course registration form to The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University.

Course Catalog

For you to choose which classes (called modules in the U.K.) you might take at Bangor University, please:

  • Go to the Bangor courses page.
  • Once there, use the third option down to search the module list by academic department, and select 'all years', then Click 'view'.
  • When the list displays, you can choose any course in years 1-3. You can also choose year 4, although that may require significant prerequisites. Make sure you're choosing the correct semester (i.e. '1' for fall, '2' for spring. You cannot choose a '1+2' course if you're only here for one semester).
  • Click on the hyperlinked code to get additional course information.
