European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)

ECTS credits are a numerical value allocated to course units to describe the student workload required to complete them. They reflect the quantity of work each course requires in relation to the total quantity of work required to complete a full year of academic study. In ECTS 60 credits represent the workload for a full academic year of study. Correspondingly, 30 credits are normally given for a semester.

At Liverpool Hope, a student completing a full year of academic study will gain 120 Liverpool Hope credits. The ECTS equivalent of any Liverpool Hope module can normally be calculated by dividing by 2 (1 ECTS credit = 2 Liverpool Hope credits)

US Credit Transfer 

US Semester Hours transfer easily to Liverpool Hope (UK) Credits. The US Credits tend to reflect the amount of contact hours in a class room with a professor. Each semester students would normally take between 12-18 US Credits to have a full class load.

Students studying at Liverpool Hope for one semester would take 60 UK credits - this is the equivalent of between 12 and 16 US credits, depending on how the US institution decides to convert them.

A student completing a full year of academic study will gain 120 UK credits - this is the equivalent of 24 - 36 US credits, depending on how the US institution decides to convert them.
