ACADEMIC CREDIT

Information for students

All our programs are specifically designed for you to earn credit at your institution. They are stringently reviewed by a panel of academics and practitioners to ensure they meet university standards, are relevant and to ensure they follow best practice.

Earning credit will enable you to apply for funding, and give you access to your university travel insurance.

Ultimately it will be up to your university to make a decision as to whether or not you can get credit and exactly how many credit points it will be worth.
