Anyone who has completed at least one year of college with a grade point average of 2.5 or better is eligible to apply. The program typically enrolls a mix of non-UNH, UNH, undergraduate, graduate, and nontraditional students. While most of our students are enrolled in colleges and universities at the undergraduate or graduate level, every year a significant number of people who have completed their formal college educations participate. Our youngest students are 18; the oldest to enroll thus far was 82. English teachers, history teachers, and others who have earned their Bachelor's degrees frequently enroll to enrich their knowledge in a particular area and earn valuable graduate credits. All that is required is a willingness to work hard for six weeks while experiencing the joys of Cambridge and the United Kingdom.
In order to ensure the transfer of credits back to the student's home institution, all non-UNH students will need to obtain the necessary approvals from their home institutions according to their institution's study abroad policies before applying to the program. This may include approval of the courses by the student's academic department, as well as eligibility approval from the home institution's study abroad office, college dean's office, or judicial office. When submitting course descriptions for approvals, students should be aware that course numbering at UNH may be different than at most institutions:
UNH 400-level course = 100-level (beginning/1st-year) course at most institutions
UNH 500-level course = 200-level course at most institutions
UNH 600-level course = 300-level course at most institutions
UNH 700-level course = 400-level (advanced/4th-year) course at most institutions
UNH 800-level course = 1st-year graduate course at most institutions
UNH 900-level course = 2nd-year graduate course at most institutions
