GAUS - a search service for approval of foreign studies
By using GAUS, employees at higher education institutions working with approval of foreign studies can access information about other institutions' assessment and conclusions of credits and qualifications obtained outside Norway.
The database contains information on students who have studied abroad as part of their degree, but also if a student holds a foreign qualification (bachelor's degree, master's degree, Ph.D).
Staff who work with credit transfer and evaluation can be given access to student information in GAUS such as host institution, course names, and number of credits obtained during the student's stay abroad (converted to ECTS).
By accessing the database, staff can gain insight and compare how credits are transferred from abroad to Norwegian higher edcuation institutions.
