- Level 5 are second year modules – these would be suitable for incoming exchange students on undergraduate degrees
- Level 6 are final year degree modules which would be suitable for experienced incoming exchange students
- Level 7 modules are Masters level – these would not normally be appropriate for incoming bachelors students
