Receive College Credits

Not only will you receive one of the most memorable experiences in your life, but delegates on all CBL International Oxbridge Programmes have the opportunity to receive academic credits.

For university-level programmes every week of CBL International Oxbridge Programmes is equivalent to 2-3 ECTS or 1-1.5 US credits. This will be outlined on your academic transcript and it is up to your home university on whether academic credits are granted. An academic advisor would be happy to assist you and explain the credit process. Alternatively please check with your study abroad or international studies department for credit availability and procedures as regulations and policies are different for every university.

For high school programmes, delegates will receive 1 US high school credit for each 2-week session. This exclusive opportunity is possible thanks to CBL International being a WorldStrides organization.

Additionally, since 2017, high school delegates can receive US college credit by completing additional work as part of their study abroad programme.
