Framework for Credit Transfer & Grade Conversion for Study Abroad
The participation of students in a study abroad programme that forms part of their degree programme may require the transfer of credits and/or grades. The International Programmes Office have produced a document which brings together in a single Framework guidance to Schools relating to the transfer of credits and the conversion of grades obtained at overseas partner universities.
In the interests of transparency, high standards and equal treatment of all students undertaking study abroad, the Framework aims to provide a common basis for those parts of the credit transfer and grade conversion process that can be standardized. It is recognised that the conversion of credits and grades from one reporting scale to another requires a clear understanding of the scales and their relationships as well as regard for academic standards and respect for the principles of partnership.
