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 and the successful completion of an assignment. The student needs to be able to assess the quality of a qualitative research paper using the tools that were offered in the course. The completion of the task is only mandatory for participants who want to achieve the ECTS study credits.
To include the credits in the curriculum at the home institution, participants need an agreement with the responsible person at their university. A certificate of attendance will be awarded to all participants at the end of the prgramme. The certificate of completion replaces the certificate of attendance.
