Credit recognition and transfer

Credit recognition

  • Recognition is understood as the acceptance of credits -by a university- which have been obtained in official courses, in the same university or a different one and counted for the purpose of obtaining an official degree. Likewise, credits taken in other official higher education courses or in university courses leading to the awarding of other degrees, as referred to in Article 34.1 of Organic Law 4/2007, of 12 April, which modifies Organic Law 6/2001, of 21 December, on Universities, may be recognised.
  • Accredited work and professional experience may be recognised as credits for the student’s official degree, provided that they are related to their degree content.

Credit transfer

  • The transfer of credits refers to the credits that do not led to the awarding of an official degree and have been added to the student’s record and official academic documents accrediting the courses passed by each student previously, in the same university or a different one. The transfer of credits requires the prior admission of the student to the corresponding degree.
  • The modules, subjects or courses transferred to the student’s academic record corresponding to the new undergraduate degrees will not be taken into account for the calculation of the point-system assessment.
  • In the case of simultaneous studies, the credits therefor achieved will not be transferred, unless they are eligible for recognition or the student renounces to such simultaneity due to the student’s withdrawal from the studies.

Master’s credit recognition

  1. At the discretion of the relevant Master’s Academic Committee, provided for in Article 20, credits from official courses taken in this or other universities may be recognised for as long as they are related to the Master’s degree for which credits are eligible for recognition.
  2. Likewise, students who have completed partial PhD studies within the framework of the provisions of Royal Decree 778/1998 or previous regulations may request recognition of credits corresponding to courses taken during the teaching period of these PhD degrees.
  3. Recognition must be requested to the Committee for Credit Recognition and Transfers and Academic Records Assessment of each university centre. The committee, where appropriate due to the complexity of credit recognition, may request the advice of the Academic Committee of the relevant Master's degree.
  4. Admission and registration rules and instructions will establish the procedure and the documentation to be submitted for the application for credit recognition.

 

Credit recognition for undergraduate, Master’s and PhD degrees

 

Recognition of credits obtained in official studies according to previous university regulations:

In the case of credits obtained in UA official degrees regulated by the Royal Decree 1497/1987, the recognition is achieved taking into account the table for credit adjustment of those degrees regulated by Royal Decree 1393/2007 and the Royal Decree 861/2010  to be included in each report required to apply for the verification of the University of Alicante degree.

In the case of credits obtained from other official degrees, they can be recognised by adapting the knowledge associated to subjects or courses taken by the student and those included in the study programmes meeting the following criteria:

  1. that the number of credits, or where appropriate hours, is at least 75% of the number of credits or hours of the subjects for which credit recognition is requested, and
  2. obtain, at least, 75% of the content of the subjects for which credit recognition is sought.

 

Recognition of the credits obtained from the study programmes in force and non-official degrees:

Credits can be recognised taking into account the adjustment of the skills and knowledge acquired by the student from other modules, subjects and courses and from those included in the study programmes or cross-curricular courses that meet the following criteria:

  • that the number of credits is at least 75% of the number of credits of the subjects for which credit recognition is requested.
  • that contain, at least, 75% of the content of the subjects for which credit recognition is requested.
  • that confer at least 75% of the skills of the subjects for which credit recognition is requested.

As for undergraduate degrees, the recognition of credits must also meet the following criteria:

  • If the undergraduate degree to which the student intends to gain access belongs to the same branch of knowledge, the credits corresponding to core subjects of that branch are eligible for recognition, with the original name, credits and mark.
  • If the undergraduate degree to which the student intends to gain access belongs to a branch of knowledge other than the original, the credits corresponding to core subjects of that new branch are also eligible for recognition.
  • In any case, the credits corresponding to the final-year undergraduate project and the Master's final project cannot be recognised.

 

Recognition of previous work and/or professional experience:

  • Accredited work and professional experience can be also recognised with credits that will count towards obtaining an official degree, provided that they confer at least 75% of the competences of the subjects eligible for credit recognition.

To be taken into account:

The number of credits allocated to work or professional experience and to non-official university studies cannot exceed, as a whole, 15 % of the total credits making up the curriculum. The recognition of those credits cannot be counted for the purpose of the student’s point-system assessment.

Notwithstanding the above, credits from UA-only degrees may, exceptionally, be subject to recognition in a higher percentage or, where appropriate, be subject to recognition in their entirety provided that the corresponding UAdegree has been phased out  and replaced by an official degree.

 

Recognition of credits in mobility programmes:

Students who participate in national or international mobility programmes signed by the University of Alicante, while studying in other higher education institutions, will obtain full recognition by means of a learning agreement established before their departure. Likewise, credits completed through official courses regulated by inter-university agreements will be recognised if they specifically state so. In both cases, a report from the Centre or University Commissions will not be necessary, as such recognition is subject to a prior agreement.
