Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

15 semester credits

Students who choose to study abroad in Edinburgh with API will enroll in courses with Scottish and other international students at Heriot-Watt University – one of the leading academic institutions in Scotland. Heriot-Watt specializes in a variety of science and engineering subjects, but is also a leader in subjects such as brewing and distilling, business, fashion, design, and textiles.

Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh award credits based on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). To determine U.S. semester credit equivalency, common practice is to divide the SCQF amount by 4. Generally, one course at Heriot-Watt is worth 15 SCQF credits, which equates to approximately 4 U.S. semester credits. Students take 4 courses per semester and earn up to 16 U.S. semester credits.

TRANSCRIPTS

API students receive their transcript from Heriot-Watt University upon completion of their program.
