Entrance Diagnostic Tests

Credits transfer

Credit Transfer is the process whereby students can be exempt from some parts of their chosen programme of academic study by recognition of their learning from previous experiences and achievements. It must be able to be mapped to particular learning outcomes in courses within the new programme. It must be an achievement of learning that has been formally assessed and certificated from previous study with a higher education organisation.Admissions Criteria and Selection

Detailed admissions criteria may vary between programmes but broadly we are looking for:

  • Academic ability and potential;
  • Suitability for the chosen programme;
  • Commitment and self-motivation.
  1. All applications for Credit Transfer must be accompanied by the Official Transcript of the issuing institution, and the detailed syllabus or course specification for those course for which credit is being requested.
  2. The official transcript, if issued outside Oman, may need to be approved by the Ministry of Higher Education before an official decision can be taken. This attestation process is solely the responsibility of the Applicant, and if approval is not given, no offer will be honoured.
  3. The maximum Credit Transfer that can be awarded is 120 Credit Points in the undergraduate programme.
  4. The time between earning the academic credit and applying for Credit Transfer may not be longer than 5(five) calendar years.
  5. If the academic credit has been used toward a Bachelor level award, it is considered to be spent, and may not be used against another Bachelor award.
  6. Any Credit Transfer counts solely toward the Credit Points required to earn the award; in the case of a Bachelor degree that is 240 Credit Points. The grade earned for such courses cannot be used to earn a grade other than Pass, and so will have no impact of the Cumulative Grade Point Average calculation.
  7. The final 120 credit points of the programme must normally be taken and satisfactorily completed at GUtech.
  8. The University does not award any Credit Transfer for uncertificated learning, or learning through experience.
  9. All admissions decisions are based on academic criteria and excellence in other areas will never compensate for lower academic potential.

Fees 
There will be a payment required at the time Credit Transfer is requested, which is normally at the Application stage.

  • A copy of the receipt for this payment must be submitted to RSA before any work on consideration of Credit Transfer can be started.
  • The fee will be based on the number of non-GUtech courses for which Credit Transfer is being requested, and will be charged at OMR 50 per course to be considered.
  • This fee is non-refundable regardless of the decision reached.

Responsibility of Applicants

  • It is the responsibility of the applicant to provide full, accurate and timely information related to an application.
  • The University reserves the right to withdraw any Offer if the application is found to include inaccurate, fraudulent, or plagiarised material.
  • By accepting an Offer, an applicant agrees to abide by the Rules and Regulations of the University.

Offer Process

  • A formal Letter of Offer of Credit Transfer will be sent directly to the Applicant, normally as an attachment via email.
  • Applicants will be given a clearly defined period by which they must accept the Offer. If an Acceptance is not received by that deadline, the applicant will be considered to have rejected the Offer. In the case of a programme with limited places, the place may then be offered to the next Applicant on the list.
  • Offers will be made as quickly as possible. However due to the need for input from professors, and the need to operate a fair process, in some cases it may take longer to reach a decision.
  • Similarly, for some programmes where there are limited places, there may be a deadline whereby some or all applications may be kept pending until a published deadline before any Offers are made. The University tries to keep such cases to a minimum and to ensure the deadline will allow an unsuccessful applicant to have time to apply elsewhere is necessary.
  • The University will require original documents to be submitted at the time of enrolment. Admissions documents will be kept by the University throughout the period of study.
