Deliverables & ECTS credits

Successful completion of the summer school can be awarded with 3 credits according the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). Credits will be awarded on the base of preparatory readings, 100 % (active) participation during the course (two weeks) and final presentations or assignment. At the end of the summer school, students are expected to present the following deliverables.  

  1. An elaborate group report (technical report format), displaying the analysis of the group work. The paper has to be submitted on the last day of the summer school. (70%)
  2. A 20 minute presentation, followed by a 10 minute Q&A, where the group work is presented.  (20%)
  3. Individual and team reflection report on the role and functioning of the student in a group of students with different regional and educational backgrounds. (10%)

Students interested in earning additional credits can submit an individual paper, building further upon the findings of the group work, within two months after the end of the summer school. To include the credits in the curriculum at the home institution, participants need an agreement with the responsible person at their university. A certificate will be awarded at the end of the programme.
