Guide to choosing classes

How many classes can I take? 

It depends on the amount of credits that each class is worth. Your classes should amount to a total of 60 Strathclyde/30 ECTS credits per semester.

What level of classes can I take?

Usually you'll choose classes from levels one to three.  This equates to 1st year to 3rd year at Strathclyde. Levels two and three classes usually require you to have done some previous study in the subject. Level four classes are not normally available to exchange students unless you have significant prior knowledge in the subject, and if there is sufficient space in the class.

Access to level four classes needs to be approved by the host department.

How to list your class choices in your online application


  • You should list all the classes you want to take in the order of preference in your online application.
  • 60% of your classes must be from one school or department (For students applying under ERASMUS, the classes should be from the department which owns the agreement.) 
  • Your classes can only be from a maximum of two departments (Primary and secondary departments).
  • It is highly recommended that all applicants have some flexibility around their classes in case they need to be changed on arrival.
