Transferring credits to Prague College
If you are currently studying at another university it is possible to transfer credit to Prague College if the modules you have completed fulfill the requirement of the programme at the college. Please get in touch with an Admissions Advisor on what you need to provide in order to receive the credit.

UK Credit System
Each module in the UK has a credit value associated with it, which is typically 15 or 20 credits and sometimes 40. One credit represents 10 hours of learning time. Learning time is defined as the amount of time a learner at the level of the module, is expected to take, on average, to complete the learning outcomes of the module to the standard defined by the assessment criteria.
Guided Learning Hours
Learning time is different from guided learning hours (GLH). The GLH does not include learning time spent away from the lecturer, and includes all the time needed to achieve a module, including contact time, directed learning, assessment preparation time and assessment time but not learner initiated study. In order to complete a degree in the UK, students need to accumulate at least 360 credits, or 120 credits a year. At Prague College students typically complete 395 UK credits.
Most modules in the first two years at Prague College are 15 credits each and the guided learning hours are 60. However a student would expect to put in about 150 hours of work on a single module.
In the final year of the Bachelors and Masters programmes a full module is typically 20 credits and a half module is 10 credits.
ECTS Credit compared to UK Credit system
In the European framework one academic year corresponds to 60 ECTS credits, or one half of the credits granted under the UK system.
Language and Culture Support
Prague College offers an intensive Czech language and culture class for all incoming students and staff, not as a part of a program of study but as a way to integrate with the society generally.
All incoming students are invited to take part in this course. As all studies are in English, additional language support comes in the form of writing tutorials, drop-in sessions for academic writing and research support.
We also have an International Student Association which is a forum for international student to meet and share experiences and concerns. The Association provides community, friendship and networking opportunities for all international students.
