Credit Transfer - a brief overview

Use your previous study to help you gain an ePolyTechnic F qualification

If you are planning to start your studies in October 2020, the deadline for credit transfer applications is 13th August 2020.

Please ensure you apply in good time to plan your studies.

If you have previously studied at the Higher Education level within the last 16 years, you may be able to count your study towards an ePolyTechnic qualification.

For example if you have:

  • »   studied some modules or courses at university level
  • »   completed part of a degree
  • »   completed a professional or vocational qualification
  • »   studied at a university overseas
  • »   completed other study listed in our previous study finder

then you may be able to count this study towards your ePolyTechnic qualification.

A number of our qualifications permit previous study completed up to 16 years ago to be considered for credit transfer.

If you think you may be eligible to apply for credit transfer, please ensure you make your application before you register on a module so you know exactly what you have been awarded and exactly what you’ll need to study to gain your chosen qualification. A credit transfer application can be made at any time in the year; we strongly recommend you make your application as soon as possible so you have time to plan your studies. We process applications in strict order of date received, so if you make your application very close to our cut-off date, we'll let you know the outcome very close to final enrolment date. It usually takes 2-4 weeks to process a credit transfer application.

It’s free to apply for credit transfer and you are under no obligation to study with us. Nothing is taken away from your previous study – the purpose of credit transfer is simply to reduce the amount of time it will take you to gain a qualification, and reduce the overall cost.

There is a lot of information on the Credit Transfer website - please ensure you read it all fully as it is designed to ensure you make a successful credit transfer application. Failure to provide all of the necessary/the correct supporting documentation will result in us being unable to process your application, which could result in you being unable to commence your studies at the time you had planned to.

If you make your application during our busiest period (June-September) please check back on this section periodically for any updates you may need to know about.

If you would like to transfer credit awarded by The ePolyTechnic towards study at another provider, we recommend that you contact that provider directly to find out about their credit transfer or Recognition of Prior Learning arrangements.
