Rewarding Previous Study

If you have gained a qualification in a relevant subject prior to the start of your online Edinburgh Business School programme, we may be able to reward this hard work with credit from certain courses. 

Course credit is only ever awarded at our discretion. Your previous qualification or professional designation must be master’s level equivalent and have been gained within the last five years. If it was gained more than five years ago, we may still consider it, if you can show that you have kept abreast of current developments in the subject area through formal Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
