Programmes of Study (what we refer to as majors) at Leeds Trinity University are made up of modules (or classes) – self-contained classes that are taught and assessed independently of each other. A single undergraduate module will include attending lectures and seminars, as well as independent study and assessment. Modules will be worth 10, 15, or 20 CATS (British credit values, from Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme), which will transfer as 3, 4, or 5 credits respectively at HPU. In order to have full-time study status, you will need to enroll in 60 CATS per semester; however, it’s best practice to get even more courses pre-approved for equivalency transfer. View the course catalog for a list of courses available at LTU.
For High Point University to recognize the credits you complete abroad, you must earn at least a grade equivalent to a C in the U.S. HPU will not accept credit for courses with grades of C– or below. Grades for all courses earned abroad are recorded on the international transcript. Credits are received by HPU as transfer credits, which means the credit is received but the grade is not. Your HPU grade point average will not be impacted positively or negatively by your study abroad courses.
