Finding Classes

*In the UK, “course” typically refers to a degree program, while “module” refers to an individual class. Use the SCQF designation as a guide in determining whether a module is equivalent to a lower division or upper division course at CWU. Generally, SCQF 07 is equivalent to the 100 level, SCQF 08 to the 200 level, SCQF 09 to the 300 level and SCQF 10 to the 400 level.

Housing

In order to assure CWU students access to cost-effective, on-campus housing, SAEP has arranged with Edinburgh Napier for students in the Banfield student accommodation.  As part of this arrangement, SAEP will apply the full cost of housing each trimester to students’ CWU account and forward payment to Edinburgh Napier on the student’s behalf.
