Credit transfer and grade conversion

Marking/grading schemes used at partner institutions are different from those used at QMUL. When you finish your studies at the partner university you will receive a transcript of records. This should be passed on to the Erasmus+ Institutional Coordinator who will liaise with Registry, and with the Subject Examination Boards (SEBs) who will approve the conversion. This will be achieved with reference to the country specific grade conversion guidance as outlined on this page. Please note that an averaged mark/grade will be applied to the block of credit that will represent your semester/year abroad rather than individual marks for each module being recorded.

The below conversion scales do not apply to the SLLF and Law. Students have to consult their academic departments.
