ECTS and Grading

The number and combination of courses you can take will depend on whether you study with us for a term or a full academic year.

For students who will be coming to Greenwich for less than a full academic year, the normal course load is 60 Greenwich credits. Usually, this equates to 4 courses of 15 credits each, equivalent to 7.5 ECTS credits (total of 30 ECTS).

For students who will be coming to Greenwich for a full academic year, the normal course load is 120 Greenwich credits (equivalent to 60 ECTS credits). This could be made up of 8 courses of 15 credits, 4 courses of 30 credits, or a combination of both 15 and 30 credit courses. You must ensure you maintain a balanced load throughout the year which totals 120 Greenwich credits.

It is up to your home university to interpret the grades you are awarded by the University of Greenwich but issues all students with a suggested grade conversion/translation scale along with their transcripts upon completion of their time at Greenwich.

You will receive a transcript from the University of Greenwich on completion of your studies, after the grades have been confirmed. For any queries relating to your transcript, please read further information provided by the Office of Student Affairs.

As of summer 2014 the University of Greenwich has adopted a new Grade Translation Policy. We hope this is a helpful guide for partners, students and colleagues.
