What do the credits on a Credit Certificate refer to?
Credits are assigned to regulated qualifications and recognised by many colleges and universities. Credits you achieve through some qualifications may count towards others, if you have covered similar learning outcomes at a comparable level. As a general rule, ten hours of learning (including both taught and self-study) equates to approximately one credit.
In the UK, each year of a three-year Bachelors degree has 120 credits. Diplomas in our RQF portfolio also carry 120 credits and match the stages of a Bachelors degree to offer clear progression.
