Your academic experience abroad is going to be very different from home. Working under the policies and processes of the local institution, you may find a lot less structure, or a lot more.
Courses and Credit Approval
- To find information on specific courses, go to the London College of Fashion's study abroad website. LCF has three semester program tracks to choose from, which offer a different selection of courses: Fashion Business, Fashion Product Design, and Fashion Media and Communication.
- To discuss program fit, such as program type, expectations, level of structure/independence, or to compare options, get advice from Global Learning advisors and returned students.
- For assistance in selecting courses, see your faculty or college advisor. (Note: You may earn elective, distributional, minor or major credit depending on your major and college.)
- Complete the Proposed Course of Study form that is part of the Global Learning application for a record of how your courses will count for credit at Cornell.
- Take the equivalent of 15 Cornell credits (16 credits at LCF) for a full semester, even if it is possible to take fewer and still graduate on time
- Complete all the academic work and stay until the end of the program, defined as the last officially-sanctioned exam for any course you take abroad
Registration and Grades
- You will be registered at Cornell and will earn credit for approved coursework for your semester/year study abroad
- Decisions on the final allocation of credit are made upon successful completion of the course (earn grade equivalent of a “C” or higher—all courses for a letter grade)
- Grades will appear on the Cornell transcript in the same format as they are recorded on the original transcript generated by the study abroad program or university. Grades are not factored into the Cornell GPA
