What are credit points and how do they work?


Credit points are a basic measure of workload. A normal full-time annual workload is 48 credit points, all subjects are given a credit point value. The academic year is divided into two main sessions - Autumn and Spring; full-time students usually enrol in 24 credit points each session; part time students usually enrol in 12 credit points each session or less.

Subjects are allocated an identification label; the first indicates the level of the subject, e.g. ACCY100 is a 100 level or first year subject, MARK217 is a 200 level or second year subject and ECON348 is a 300 level or third year subject.
