If qualifications or modules of an undergraduate or postgraduate degree at another university has been achieved by applicants, we can consider these for module exemption or direct entry into a year or level of entry. The exemption allowed will be dependant on what has been achieved and its relevance to the course applied for.

This process is called Credit Transfer and applicants wishing to apply for this need to apply through the standard routes and put on their application their proposed point of entry. Transcripts for the obtained credit (studies) needs to be provided so this can be sent to the relevant admissions programme tutor to determine if use can be made of a the credit transfer.
