Course Description

As an ISEP student, you can build your own program by choosing your courses from a variety of fields. Use the notes for course searching to help you find which courses are available. Please note the following factors about requesting modules when applying: 

Choosing Your Campus:

You must choose all of your classes within the same campus. You may sometimes mix classes from different departments as long as they are all offered at the same campus. Keep in mind that some fields of study are offered at multiple campuses, but one campus may offer a larger variety of course options in that subject, than the other campuses. You are not eligible to take courses at Ulster’s partner institutions.

How to Select Courses:

It is important to note, that in the U.K., the term modules refers to courses. Please use the "Website for Course Availability" link to find courses for ISEP students.

Understanding Course Levels:

The first three letters next to the module name represent an academic department. The next three numbers represent the course number.

In the U.K., undergraduate programs run for three years instead of four like in the United States. Courses in the 100-299 series are first-year courses; the 300-499 series are second-year courses; 500-699 are final year courses. You are not allowed to take 000 modules ("Level A"), which are pre-undergraduate non-degree, or 700+ modules ("Level M"), which are postgraduate level.

What a Full-Time Academic Load at Ulster Looks Like:

Most students take three modules per semester, each usually worth five U.S. credits. Not all modules listed online may be offered each semester, so students should select ample alternatives.
