The maximum amount of credit we award is normally two thirds of the total credits required for the qualification. For example:
- 240 credits recognised towards the 360 credits required for a BA honours
- 40 credits recognised towards the 60 credits required for a Postgraduate Certificate
During your course you may have to take compulsory modules that you cannot claim against. In this case, it might be that you are only able to claim less than two thirds of your total credits.
How to make a claim
To claim academic credit you need to provide evidence of your previous learning that has been, or can be, assessed and/or formally recognised by us at Middlesex.
Your evidence must be of actual learning and not experience, time spent or work. Evidence of your participation in courses, training without a recognised credit value, years of experience at work or your job title will not be accepted by themselves.
