course vs module vs lecture vs seminar

My question concerns terminology in education in universities. Let us consider the following terms:

1a. course in the US

1b. course in the UK

2a. module in the US

2b. module in the UK

3a. lecture in the US

3b. lecture in the UK

4a. seminar in the US

4b. seminar in the UK

Which terms denote one-off events, which events last a term, and which events denote a whole BSc/MSc program? (Yes, I've read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Course_(education), but it seems controversial.)
