Parent term: Credit accumulation and transfer
A systematic way of describing a higher education programme by attaching credits to its components (modules, courses, placements, dissertation work, etc.), to: – make study programmes easy to read and compare for all students, local and foreign; – encourage mobility of students and recognition of formal, non-formal and informal learning; – help universities to organise and revise their study programmes.
