Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
