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 are interested in taking in your online application in order of preference. Around 50% of your classes should be from the same subject area/department. This will be your primary host department at Strathclyde during your study period.
You will receive feedback on the availability of these classes once you have applied and your application has been reviewed by your host department/s. This process can take up to 4 weeks. Although you are expected to stick with the classes which have been pre-approved in advance of your arrival, there is scope to make some changes if necessary when you reach Strathclyde during the first couple of weeks of classes beginning.
