Midlands Credit Compass
The Midlands Credit Compass from MEU helps students who want to switch universities, take a break from their studies or move away from their current place of study.
What is ‘credit’ and how is it used?
When students successfully complete a module at university they receive a number of credits for that part of their studies. These can be used in full or in part to transfer to a course at a different university, so that students do not have to repeat the same area of study. It is more likely that credit can be used against a similar course, but the Midlands Credit Compass helps students through the application process even if they would like to study something new.
Are you a student thinking of applying?
The Midlands Credit Compass makes it easier to transfer or return to one of our universities. As part of our service we will:
- provide you with a named key contact at the university you would like to transfer to
- respond to your initial enquiry within five working days
- support you through the application process
- support your application to transfer for up to five years from the time you left your studies
How do I apply?
If you’re thinking of leaving your current course, please get in touch with your personal tutor in the first instance. They will be able to provide you with guidance and support during this decision-making process and ensure the decision is right for you.
