Use your previous HE study to help you gain an OU qualification
June 2009 and December 2013
You will need at least 30 credits of study before you can be awarded credit transfer. Modules at the OU are usually either 30 or 60 credits so you need a minimum of 30 credits to use credit transfer in an OU qualification. If you have more than one eligible qualification we can add the credits from each qualification to reach the minimum of 30 credits.
To confirm the exact amount of credit you can use you must make a formal application for credit transfer. For more details on how credit from this previous study can be used in OU qualifications please see OU qualification.
With your application you should provide your original certificate (if the qualification was completed) together with a transcript of academic record, or equivalent, which should list all the subjects you successfully completed together with the marks or grades you achieved. Depending on the OU qualification that you wish to transfer your credit towards you may also need to provide syllabus information. When do I need to provide syllabus information?
If you have already studied with the OU please sign in to make sure that you get the credit transfer information that is relevant to you.
