Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS) is used by many universities in the United Kingdommarker to monitor, record and reward passage through a modular degree course and to facilitate movement between courses and institutions. Typically a university course of 10 to 20 2-hour sessions would, on successful completion, be worth between 10 and 20 CATS points, at one of Levels 1 to 3.

360 points need to be accumulated (240 points at level 2 or above and 120 points at level 3) to qualify for award of an honours degree. A foundation degree is broadly equivalent to 240 points, and a 'pass/ordinary degree' to 300 points.

A postgraduate Master's degree is equivalent to 180 points at Level M.

It is possible to equate CATS with the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework and the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System . Two CATS points are equivalent to one ECTS point.
