Please review all your syllabi and course materials when you are registering for classes (both pre-arrival and on-site). Certain classes may have a one-off lab or field trip fee that is disclosed in the syllabus or first meeting of class. You will be responsible for these fees, whether they are billed and paid by IFSA or billed to you.
Media, Arts and Design courses ("MAD" courses) require a cumulative 3.0 GPA. It is strongly suggested that students interested in media studies enroll for the entire academic year, but this is not an official requirement. The communication, design, and media courses are extremely competitive and can close before the IFSA published deadline.
The University of Westminster offers a wide array of internship opportunities in the bustling city of London. Each internship involves a work assignment of 14 hours, two to three days per week. Your placement is subject to a successful interview after you arrive in London. The duration of the internship is one semester and it is worth 4 Butler University U.S. semester credit hours.
As part of the internship, you will take a tutorial course and prepare a related academic project.
