4 or 8 ECTS Credits
- Option No. 1 (4 ECTS credits): Students will earn 4 ECTS credits for active participation in the programme, which includes attendance, preparation (reading materials) for the workshop sessions, and taking part in the final group presentations.
- Option No. 2 (8 ECTS credits): Students will earn 8 ECTS credits for active participation in the programme (as described above) and the submission of a seminar paper of 15-20 pages (optimally within one month after the course finishes).
- After fulfilling all requirements, students will receive an official transcript with 4 or 8 ECTS credits and their grade. We use the ECTS grading scale of A to F, where A is the best and F means failed.
- In addition to the official transcript, students who have actively participated will get an official certificate of participation on the last day of the course. (This official certificate does not have any grade or number of credits stated on it.)

The reading materials will be available via our online reader for participants beginning August 8, 2018.
After the end of the summer school, students will have one month (until October 23, 2018) to hand in their papers.
During the entire period, students may get in touch with our lecturers and tutors who are ready to assist them.
