The University of Winchester’s academic departments, centers, and institutes offer a range of study options within the arts and humanities, social sciences, cultural studies, computing, and entrepreneurial business and management.
Students can choose across disciplines for their module selection but should enroll in a total of 60 CATS. Modules in the United Kingdom are valued using the Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS), where 10 CATS are equivalent to 3 HPU credits, 15: 4, and 20:5, etc. Students enroll in a semester load of 50-60 CATS, which is equivalent to a semester's course load at HPU. In planning, look for at least twice as many available modules as you may intend to take, giving you options and alternate courses for enrollment. Therefore, students interested in applying to the University of Winchester should obtain equivalency approvals for a minimum of 120 CATS. To view the module selection, visit the University of Winchester Incoming Exchange Student page and review the Academic Information and Module Information sections (found under Other Information for Incoming Students heading). More information about module selection can be found in the Winchester Guide to Module Selections.
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.
