Q: System of Kingston
Asked by Young Eun
Hello, I'm Young Eun and I'm supposed to be a student of Kingston.
My question is, how is a system of Kingston?
In Korea, students choose and register for lectures amongst various courses through the Internet. How about in Kingston?
Can I choose any class I want?

I have no idea about taking courses system of Kingston. Please help me :)

You can read more about the types of modules available on your course by looking at the module descriptions on the course page of the website for example for my course dance and drama these are the module choices (scroll to the bottom):

Course: Dance with Drama
Level: Alumni 2012
