The Grade Point Average (GPA) scheme at Brookes allows students to demonstrate their achievement throughout their studies in a simple yet detailed way, that is recognised internationally, and which complements the existing degree classification system with which UK employers are familiar.
We are pleased to be the first UK institution to launch a true, internationally equivalent GPA, as a further symbol of the University's ambition to be at the forefront of educational development and the provision of an excellent student experience.
We also participated alongside other institutions in the national pilot scheme that was run by the Higher Education Academy (HEA). The report from this pilot was launched on 28 May 2015, and the full text is available from the HEA website.
Matthew Andrews, former Director of Academic and Student Affairs, talks about the GPA - what it is and how it affects students.
