Credits

You will earn UK Credits while you study with us - the 12-week Programmes are each worth 60 UK credits and the Double and Full Year Programmes are worth 120 UK credits. See below for how our credits convert to your country's system. 

European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)

ECTS credits are a numerical value allocated to course units to describe the student workload required to complete them. 60 ECTS credits represent the workload for a full academic year of study and therefore 30 credits normally represent a half year.

The ECTS equivalent of a Study Abroad course at Liverpool Hope is usually calculated by dividing by 2 (1 ECTS credit = 2 Liverpool Hope credits) 

US Credit Transfer 

US Credits tend to reflect the amount of contact hours in a class room with a professor. 24-30 US credits represent a full academic year of study and therefore 12-15 credits represent a half-year. This can vary by institution so please check with your Study Abroad Avisor to check how many credits you will gain from our Programmes. 

The US equivalent of a Study Abroad course at Liverpool Hope is usually calculated by dividing by 4 (1 US credit = 4 Liverpool Hope credits)
