Assessment and Credit

What do you need to know?

The ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) is used to convert marks attained at European institutions.

5 ECTS credits are equivalent to 10 Swansea University credits.

Swansea University will issue official transcripts in July. One copy will be sent to your home University and a second copy will be sent to you at your home address. The transcript will refer to both types of credit.
