Additional information

This is an American degree. It is made up of units known as credit hours. Each class that you undertake will allow you to accumulate credit hours.

Most classes (modules) carry three credit hours. You must successfully complete at least 36 credit hours (12 modules) to complete the programme.

The main parts of your degree are the core modules. You will follow 8-10 core modules, depending on your chosen degree. These must be complemented with a selection of elective modules to make up the required total of 12 modules.

For some programmes, elective modules can be chosen from the full selection of MA, MS and MBA classes.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
