Modular Residency Requirements for King’s modules:

Students must complete the majority of the courses for their King’s module through King’s. Individual departments may have additional requirements noted on their program checklist.

For example, if your Major module requires 6.0 credits, at least 3.5 on those must be taken through King’s.

Degree Residency Requirements:

Of the 20.0 required courses used to fulfil graduation requirements, a minimum of 15.0 courses must be completed through Western University or one of the Affiliated University Colleges. A maximum of 5.0 courses may be taken at another university on a Letter of Permission or on Exchange.
