A number of our short courses, typically those that are also modules of a degree, can be used to gain credits to be put towards a Cranfield degree.

In order to gain Cranfield credits, a delegate must take and successfully pass the assessment associated with the short course (delegates not requiring credits do not need to take an assessment).

Accruing credits

Those wishing to move on to a Cranfield degree can request that credits accrued through relevant short courses be considered as partial completion of the degree they wish to pursue. Students wishing to take this route should check with the Course Director of the intended degree which short courses can be considered.

One advantage of using an accredited short course to complete a module (or modules) is that you are not required to commit to long periods of time away from your place of work. Most accredited short courses will be delivered over five to ten days, with additional private study and assessment which may happen at a later date.

Using Cranfield credits at other organisations

Some partner and external organisations also recognise Cranfield credits as part of their awards. The basis upon which these can be used should be checked with the organisation awarding the degree, who will have their own regulations.
