Students considering this program should look at the full curriculum by searching the "Catalogue of Modules" ("Modules" are what individual courses are called in the UK. "Courses" in the UK means Majors).
In Britain, students work on their degrees in much more concentrated fashion and without the general education and breadth components of American education. At Nottingham, students complete their degrees in three years. Binghamton students who are juniors or seniors will discover that some of the courses that are best matches with the courses they still need, may be second or even first year courses. Nottingham's wide variety of programs provides opportunities for students to fulfill major requirements and take advantage of the study abroad experience through courses about the United Kingdom, Europe or global topics.
Credits: A full course load at Nottingham is to be equivalent to a full load of Binghamton credit. The credit designation for courses in the Nottingham system are 10, 15, or 20. SUNY equivalencies for the courses are therefore 3, 4, and 5 respectively. Students should select a combination of courses to add up to the equivalent of 12 to 18 Binghamton credits.
