You can expect the same academic rigour from your summer study experience as a full time degree programme at UEA, and you'll be assessed in a number of different ways. Depending on your chosen course, assessment methods are likely to include coursework, essays, class presentations, tests and practical laboratory work.

UEA has rules on submitting your work correctly. As well as compulsory orientation sessions, you'll also be given a handbook which will provide you with all you need to know about submitting your work correctly. All work is assessed in accordance with the University's formal guidelines and assessed at Exam Board level. Full module details including assessment methods and deadlines can be found in the individual module outlines.

Accreditation and credit transfer

All Undergraduate International Summer School modules are worth 20 UCU credits / 10 ECTS credits at Undergraduate Level 5. We will provide you with an electronic transcript at the end of September 2019, and a certificate of attendance during the finale celebrations.

All our modules offer a minimum of 40 academic contact hours over the 4-week programme. Your academic contact hours may include a mixture of in-depth and inspiring classroom discussions, experiential workshops, leading guest lectures or off-campus field trips.

If you need to gain additional credit during the summer, simply select this option when you apply, you'll be enrolled in an extra module allowing you to gain an additional 5 UCU credits / 2.5 ECTS credits. This will then be added to your electronic transcript and certificate of attendance.

Grade translations and credit transfer are managed by your home university and arrangements can vary between institutions, this should be approved before enrolling on the programme.
