Credit transfer scheme
England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales
All Modules at providers in Wales.
Optional for all Modules at providers in England, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
Describes a credit point transfer scheme to which the module belongs.
Credit accumulation and transfer schemes allow students to collect credit for work already completed, if they decide to terminate their study before achieving a complete award. If and when they resume their studies, not necessarily at the same provider, they may be able to carry forward the credits from their previous study. Valid entry 91 must not be returned by providers in Wales.
Where Module.CRDTSCM=91 (no scheme), Module.CRDTPTS should not be returned as there is no credit point scheme.
Providers in England and Northern Ireland should not return a value in Module.CRDTPTS where credit transfer schemes are coded 03 and 90 in Module.CRDTSCM.
For providers in Scotland this field must be coded 01. The only exception to this rule is students for whom Qualification.QUALCAT begins D or L, who can be coded 91 in this field.
This attribute aids interpretation of Module.CRDTPTS and Module.LEVLPTS. Whilst it is not expected that many HEPs will operate numerous different credit scheme this can happen in certain cases. In addition many Modules are likely to sit out with the credit schemes operated by the HEP. It is therefore appropriate to collect the Credit Scheme at a modular level.
