Course Offerings at Oxford Brookes University

Webster University students who study abroad at Oxford Brookes will receive academic credit at Webster University for all courses. Depending on the type of program and the student’s major, specific course equivalencies may vary and are subject to review by individual departments.

Students will register for courses as part of the direct application process to Brookes. Students will not see the final grades on their Webster record until after the official transcript arrives from Oxford and is entered onto their record. Due to a difference in academic calendars, this happens several months after program completion. (Fall grades arrive in late March of the following semester, and Spring grades arrive in late July of the following semester).

Depending on the individual student’s major, the credits from Oxford Brookes will apply differently at Webster University. It is important that students maintain contact with their home-campus advisor regarding this.

Courses at Oxford Brookes are called “Modules.” A student studying abroad at Brookes for a semester will take four modules and earn 16 US credits for the semester. The Office of Study Abroad works with students and their academic departments in order to obtain course equivalencies for the modules they take at Oxford Brookes.
