Courses and Credits

Students must take 4 courses for a total of 16 JHU units per semester. King's College students usually take courses in one or two departments within the same faculty (school). For this reason, applicants should ideally apply to study in (and pick courses from) no more than two departments. If you need to study in multiple departments, you can, but there will most likely be more course conflicts as full degree students study primarily within their major. 
London - Tube
Students need to have courses pre-approved by their major/minor departments and earn the equivalent of a C or better in order to transfer credits back to Hopkins. Grades will not appear on the Hopkins transcript or factor into the GPA.

Pre-Med Option

Pre-med students will need to enroll at King's via IFSA-Butler in order to obtain a U.S. School of Record transcript, required for U.S. medical school admissions (see application instructions below). Pre-med students interested in taking the highly selective Health & Society Module while at King’s will need to submit a separate application for the module through IFSA-Butler (in addition to the regular program application). If admitted, the module will count as one of the four courses required for full-time semester enrollment. The module combines an integrated in-class curriculum that considers the social, ethical, and anthropological perspectives underpinning practice and provides a range of shadowing opportunities in different clinical settings. It is available each semester but is competitive. It is recommended that students have a minimum GPA of 3.7 or above to apply.London - Sunset - Loh, Caitlin
