Credit transfer & grade conversion

The 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 QMUL's  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 that will be outlined on this page. 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.

For India: conversion scales will be published in May 2018.

SLLF and Law apply their own conversion scales.

SLLF students please consult their academic department.

At the Law Department, grades achieved during the year abroad are not converted to QMUL grades, as the grade average achieved abroad does not count towards the calculation of a student’s grade average at QMUL. However, performance during the year abroad can be taken into account at QMUL to decide borderline cases of degree classification (e.g. whether the degree will be 2.2 or 2.1). In this case, the grade conversion table below may be used as orientation to decide how a student has performed abroad and whether this can inform the decision about the degree classification at QMUL.
