The UMAP Credit Transfer Scheme (UCTS) was developed to simplify the process of transferring credits earned in overseas exchange programs to the students’ home universities.

UCTS uses the 60 credit point scale originally developed for the European Credit Transfer Scheme (ECTS). These points can be applied to both trimester-based and semester-based academic years.

The UCTS credit point scale facilitates the conversion of credits between different grading systems. It is not intended to supplant the existing credit point scales (or other measures of student workload) used by the host and home universities, nor is it meant to replace universities’ regulations and autonomy in terms of assessing students’ learning outcomes.
