Credits points counted towards study(CRDPTSTU)
Credits points counted towards study
All EntryProfile entities at providers in England where applicable
This field indicates the number of previously awarded credit points being used towards the student’s current study.
Where a student uses previously awarded credit points or APEL towards their current study, this field records the number of credits. This is used in combination with EntryProfile.CRDSCM which records the relevant credit scheme and EntryProfile.APELCRD which is returned where the credits are the result of APEL.
Providers should not return credits that are recorded as part of an awarded qualification in HIGHESTQOE. Only credits are to be returned.
This credit could have been awarded by the reporting provider as part of a previous Engagement. If the student is using previous credit to count towards their current Engagement, this should be recorded.
Where the student has a previous award, rather than credits, this would not be recorded in this field. For example, if a student completed a foundation degree at provider A before moving to provider B to complete a top-up, the credits for the foundation degree would not be recorded in this field. If the foundation degree was the student's highest qualification this would be recorded in EntryProfile.HIGHESTQOE.
Fractional credit points should be rounded to the nearest whole number.
Values are to be recorded as positive, whole integers.
The Open University are also required to report this field for all non-English parts.
To help the OfS understand where this type of activity happens and to ensure that choice and competition within the market drive innovation, diversity and improvement.
