European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)

ECTS credits are a numerical value allocated to course units to describe the student workload required to complete them. They reflect the quantity of work each course requires in relation to the total quantity of work required to complete a full year of academic study. In ECTS 60 credits represent the workload for a full academic year of study. Correspondingly 30 credits are normally given for a semester.

At Liverpool Hope a student completing a full year of academic study will gain 120 Liverpool Hope credits. The ECTS equivalent of any Liverpool Hope module can normally be calculated by dividing by 2 (1 ECTS credit = 2 Liverpool Hope credits)

Course Levels:

Courses are available at all three undergraduate

levels - Level C, I and H.

• Level C means it is a first year course, you can think of this as a Freshman year course

• Level I means it is a second year course, you can think of this as a Sophomore or Junior year course

• Level H means it a third year course, you can think of this as a Senior year course

 

Year 1 courses have more taught classes and will have a slightly easier assessment, whereas Year 2 and 3 courses may have less contact time, more emphasis on personal research and assessments that are more challenging.
