European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS)

UHI has recognised the ECTS for the purposes of award and transfer of credit, in line with common practice in Scotland and the UK. UHI will award ECTS credits on the basis of one ECTS credit for every two SCQF credits at SCQF Levels 7-11. UHI will recognise ECTS credits achieved from European universities for students seeking admission to UHI programmes. Academic transcripts issued by UHI will show both SCQF and ECTS credit totals.

UHI’s equivalence policy, which defines how students’ learning opportunities are equivalent, applies to provision delivered at or by an external collaborative partner. All approved International Exchange programmes will have an identified units/ modules/ courses which are eligible for inclusion in the degree programme and the assessment judgements comply with the equivalence policy.
