Academics

 

Academics

Studying in England is very different than what you might be used to. Students are expected to study outside of class to retain a large portion of their subject matter.  Unlike universities in the United States, the majority of each student's grades in England is based on one or two large assignments or solely on the final test - not on class participation or attendance.  This study abroad experience provides Emory students an independent experience with the opportunity to get to know students from Britain and all over the world.

The Study Abroad program at Manchester is fully integrated, so you will attend the same classes and live in the same accommodation as any other Manchester student. It is critical that you are prepared for immersion into the UK academic system. Here are some important characteristics we think it will be helpful for you to know about the UK academic system
On Manchester's module request form, you will be asked to list up to five course choices per semester, plus up to two alternatives. Give your course choices careful consideration as after you have received approval for courses there will be little change to these courses after you arrive in Manchester, except for scheduling conflict purposes. The two-week 'add-drop' period after the start of teaching is primarily to enable you to adjust your course-load to take account of timetable clashes.


Note: Every effort will be made to place you in the courses you request. However, neither Manchester nor Emory University can guarantee placement in any course. Your first choices may not be available due to schedule changes, time conflicts or cancellations. Alternate course approval and flexibility is extremely important.

Housing

 

Housing

  • Accommodation ranges from modern self-catering apartments through to traditional collegiate-style halls of residence with meal plans that incur an additional fee
  • All students are given their own room with many facilities available including en-suite bathrooms
  • The University of Manchester (not Emory) assigns housing. Find additional information about housing here
  • Please note that the choice of housing in the Spring Semester 2 is often very restricted; it is common for spring students to be offered a place in an alternative hall
