The numbers that dictate a student's college career. Every class grants (usually) 3 credits, the average student carries 15 credit hours a semester. Students will need, gasp, around 128 credits in order to graduate.
Point value of each course. Also called Credit Hours, Semester Hours, Hours.
each unit represents a specific number of credits at a particular level. Each stage comprises 120 credits. Most units on the Programme are currently worth 20 credits, hence six units are typically taken in each stage. The level three dissertation is an exception to this being worth 40 credits. Full-time students are required to undertake all 120 credits in one year of study.
Strathclyde University recognises 10 credits being the equivalent of 90 hours of student effort. Of these between 25-35 hours of contact will be available depending on the nature of the subject taught.
(also referred to as “semester hours”) — Used by the College to measure a student's progress toward the degree. Most courses (without laboratories) award 3 credits upon successful completion of the course. Some foreign language and science courses carry 4 credits.
The unit of measurement of the value of course work.
You normally take 120 credits of modules in each academic year. However, it is possible to take up to 140 credits during an academic year if you are picking up credit or re-registered on a module.
A value that is assigned to a class and is often related to how many hours the course is per week.
Arithmetic representation of the value of completed course work towards the degree requirements. One classroom hour and two hours of homework for the nominal fifteen-week semester usually counts for one credit. As the usual course responsibility requires three classroom hours per week, per semester, and six hours of work per week outside the classroom, the normal yield per course is three credits. Tradition and practice in the case of laboratory, studio, shop, and other practica awards proportional credit for hours of attendance.
The units which universities use to record the completion of courses (with passing grades) that are required to complete the degree. The catalog will define the amounts and kinds of credits that are required for the university’s degrees and will state the value of each course offered in terms of "credit hours" or "units."
Points or credits that a course unit carries towards an award. On a full time course of study, this is normally worth 120 points per year (usually 6 units with 20 credit points each) working towards a requirement of 360 credits for a conventional honours degree.
Credit is an educational currency which provides a measure of learning achieved at a given level. The University of Central Lancashire has adopted a modular structure and credit accumulation and transfer framework (known as MODCATS) for the delivery of its courses. Dean Person responsible for the overall running of a Faculty.
Each course is defined in terms of the number of credits obtained by a student who successfully achieves the learning outcomes through the assessment task(s). Most are worth 15 or 30 credits. Full-time students would normally take 120 credits in a year, and most undergraduate degrees require 360 credits; some professional awards require 480 credits.
Earned after successful completion (pass) of a course. If students fail a course, they have only attempted (but not earned) the credits for the course. Three semester credits are approximately equivalent to three 50-minute meeting periods per week in a 15-week semester.
Generally agreed value used to measure student workload in terms of learning time required to complete course units, resulting in learning outcomes.
Each class has a set number of credits that it is worth typically from 1-5. Each credit correlates to a 1-hour class and approximately 2 hours of homework.
numerical units employed by post-secondary institutions to communicate the academic weight of a course or program section. Assigned credits are used to record the completion of a required course of study and to assist in the transfer of students from one institution to another.
Numerical unit(s) earned for completion of a specific course. Credits are related to the number of hours of instruction provided per week during a 15 week academic term.
A standard course is equivalent to 4credits. Students must earn 130 credits to earn a bachelor’s degree.
Units institutions use to record the completion of courses (with passing grades) that are required for an academic degree. The catalog of a college or university defines the number and kinds of credits that are required for the university's degrees and states the value of each course offered in terms of "credit hours" or "units."
The units that US schools and universities use to record the completion of courses. Each course has a credit value, based on the time ('credit hours') it takes to complete. A certain number of credits will be required to graduate.
Credits are used to illustrate how units fit together within a programme of study. The workload for a typical undergraduate year comprises 60 credits (usually split equally into 30 credits for each semester). For postgraduate students the number of credits making up a year's workload varies according to the type of programme being studied. A typical full-time postgraduate masters programme comprises 90 credits, a postgraduate diploma 60 credits and a postgraduate certificate 30 credits. See the Programme Structures page for further information.
Units institutions use to record the completion of courses of instruction (with passing or higher grades) that are required for an academic degree. The catalog of a college or university defines the amounts and kinds of credits that are required for its degrees and states the value in terms of degree credit -- or "credit hours" or "credit points" -- of each course offered.
Short form of Credit Hours.
Listing of those involved in the development of a game, typically including the programmer, artist, musician, and producer.
Universities and colleges in general assign every course a given number of credits. The catalog of a college or university defines the number and types of credits that are required for the university's degrees and states the value of each course offered in terms of "credit hours" or "units." It is generally equivalent to the number of hours spent in class in a week.
Number of credit hours for which the course is being offered (sometimes seen as "units"). E, F, G
Credits vary, depending upon the type of course. One credit is generally given for three hours per week of work in class and 6 hours of work per week out of class.
