The European Credit and Transfer System (ECTS)

The European Credit and Transfer System (ECTS) is the European framework designed to facilitate the transfer of credit between courses for students who choose to study at more than one European University, including exchange students. The ECTS defines credit slightly differently to the SCQF system as one year of study equates to 60 ECTS credit points. University of Stirling credit values are translated into ECTS credits by dividing the Stirling Credit by two, for example: Undergraduate Programme Module 20 Stirling Credits = 10 ECTS credits.

The University of Stirling does not convert or translate its grades to reflect the requirements of a particular country or institution. For information that may be of use to students requiring this please see the NARIC website.
