About Glasgow

GlasgowDisarmingly blending sophistication and earthiness, Scotland's biggest city has evolved over the last couple of decades to become one of Britain's most intriguing metropolises. Glasgow's principal architectural legacy is its impressive assemblage of stately Victorian mansions and public buildings, the product of wealth generated from manufacturing and trade. The city – always proud of its working-class background – also innovatively displays its industrial heritage, while modern structures, many along the Clyde River, have quickly become local icons.

About Scotland 

Despite its small size, Scotland has many treasures crammed into its compact territory – big skies, lonely landscapes, spectacular wildlife, superb seafood and hospitable, down-to-earth people. Be it the poetry of Robert Burns, the crime fiction of Ian Rankin or the songs of Emeli Sandé, Scotland's cultural exports are appreciated around the world every bit as much as whisky, tweed and tartan. But you can't beat reading Burns' poems in the village where he was born, enjoying an Inspector Rebus novel in Rankin's own Edinburgh, or catching the latest Scottish bands at the T in the Park festival. And museums such as Glasgow's Kelvingrove, Dundee's Discovery Point and Aberdeen's Maritime Museum recall the influence of Scottish artists, engineers, explorers, writers and inventors in shaping the modern world. (Source)

Guide to Selecting Classes

Exchange students will normally select classes/courses from levels 1 to 3. Level 1 classes are usually at an introductory level and may not require much previous knowledge or study in the subject. Level 2 and 3 classes will normally require some previous study in the subject. Level 4 classes are not usually available to exchange students unless they have significant background in the subject and meet the prerequisites for the class.
 

How Many Units?

The University of Strathclyde operates the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). 7.5 ECTS is equal to 1 Deakin credit therefore 30 ECTS is equal to 4 Deakin credits. students will normally be required to take 60 Strathclyde credits per semester (30 ECTS) during their exchange.

A minimum of 6 (8 is recommended) Deakin credits are to be included in your study plan per trimester that you are applying for and for each university preference.

E.g. If you are applying for two trimesters and for two different universities? You would bring 6-8 units for T1 for each university and then 6-8 units for T2 for each university. A total of 12-16 units.
