Certificates, Transcripts and Credit Transfer

All students will be awarded a certificate of attendance by the University of Warwick upon completion of the programme and this is sent to students after the programme comes to an end. In addition to an attendance certificate, students who sit the optional course assessment will also be sent an official University of Warwick transcript of results which can often be used for credit transfer at your home institution. Students who wish to gain credit should contact their Study Abroad Office or the office at their university that deals with external credit.

It is ultimately up to a student's home institution as to how much credit is awarded but we are happy to provide any necessary information to your registry or academic advisor to help them evaluate our courses. Students in previous years who have successfully transferred credits for our courses have received 7.5 ECTS/3 US credits. It is advisable for students to ensure they check with their home institution about credit transfer prior to their arrival.
