Terminology

At the University of Roehampton, a discipline or major is called a “course.” The courses are made up of individual study units called modules.

Pre-Requisites

Some courses do require pre-requisites but these tend to be noted as specific modules within the university. BCA can work with you and with the University of Roehampton to identify if the pre-requisites might be fulfilled by US courses already taken and thus waived.

Teaching Style

Summer courses typically meet in the morning, finishing at approximately 2 PM., four days per week.

 Assessments

Your work is assessed through essays, examinations, project work, group presentations, as well as field and laboratory reports, depending upon your area of study.

 Credits/Number of Courses

Each course is worth 20 UK credits which is equivalent to 5 US credit hours. Students enrolled in a three-week program take one course and students enrolled in the six-week program take two courses.

Course Registration

When you apply to the program, you will be asked to list courses, which you are hoping to take while in London. This list is for advising purposes only as it helps BCA understand your course needs and make sure that our program is a good fit for you.
