  • Please be flexible – we can’t guarantee specific courses. If your participation in the program depends on a particular course, be sure to make a note on your online preferences form.

Choosing Your Courses

Refer to the Module Catalogs for Study Abroad Students:

  • Visit Winchester's page for study abroad students and expand the "Module Information" tab under the "Other Information for Incoming Students" heading. Consult the Semester 1 Module Catalog for fall courses and the Semester 2 Module Catalog for spring courses. 
    • Note: if you plan to study abroad for the Academic Year, you will need to consult both catalogs in making your course selections. 
  • Please use the table below when reviewing the course catalog.
  • You may also consider enrolling in a Value Studies Module, a unique set of modules offered by the University of Winchester that involve an interdisciplinary, co-taught set of seminar-based courses investigating various questions about ethics, politics, art, religion and education.

  • Arts
  • BSS (Business, Law & Sport)
