At Ulster we call the individual subjects that you will study modules. They are sometimes called classes or courses at other universities.
You will be required to undertake three 20 UK credit modules per semester which is equal to 60 UK credits or 120 credits for the full academic year.
Please note: A 20 UK credit module is worth 10 ECTS credits or 5 US credits.
You may choose modules from a range of subjects or take a more focused approach by choosing to specialise in a specific area, the choice is yours.
Depending on the terms of our agreement with your home institution you may be restricted to a specific subject area. If you would like to take modules outside your subject area, you must get permission from your home institution.
Before selecting your modules please ensure that you have confirmed with your home institution the correct module level you will be required to study as indicated below:
- Level 4: First year of a Full-Time Undergraduate degree course
- Level 5: Second year of a Full-Time Undergraduate degree course
- Level 6: Final year Honours standard
- Level 7: *Postgraduate level (Master’s)
For undergraduate level students it is our recommendation you select Level 4 or Level 5 modules to ensure you have the best experience at Ulster
