Know the lingo!
Keep in mind, many of the partner universities use different terminology, have different semester dates and different credit systems.
In the US, Canada and Asia, a unit is called a course and a course is called a program. In the UK and Europe, a unit is called a module.
Each university will have different semester dates, with the academic year in most other countries commencing in August or September.
In the US, Canada and Asia, many partner universities will refer to their credits as credit hours. A full time load may be 12 to 16 credit hours, however this does vary between universities.
In the UK and Europe, many partner universities will refer to their credits as ECTS. In general, 7.5 ECTS is the equivalent value of 25 Curtin credits but this is at the discretion of your study plan approver.
