Liberal Arts, Business, and Design Summer School

Location: London, England
Institution: University of Westminster
Academic Focus: Students choose one or more classes out of a multitude of classes offered in a variety of subjects. All class levels are based on the three-year UK undergraduate degree system.  All credits will be awarded via an official academic transcript from the University of Westminster with each class being worth 15 UK credits which normally equates to 4 U.S. or 7.5 ECTS credits. All classes must be taken on a credit bearing basis and students will not have the option to audit any class on offer.

At the University of Westminster, classes are validated at a level corresponding to a particular year of study. The levels used are:
  • Level 4, which is equivalent to the 1st year of an undergraduate degree
  • Level 5, which is equivalent to the 2nd year of an undergraduate degree
  • Level 6, which is equivalent to the 3rd year of an undergraduate degree
Some U.S. institutions consider the first year of their undergraduate degrees to be the equivalent of the foundation year of UK university undergraduate degrees. Therefore, University of Westminster classes at Level 4 may be considered to be the equivalent of classes taken in the second year of undergraduate degrees in the U.S.  Level 5 classes are designed to enhance the student's previous knowledge of a particular subject, while Level 6 classes will be at a more advanced and specialized level of study.
