We'll assess you in several different ways during your time at UEA. Depending on your chosen module, this can include coursework, essays, class presentations, tests and practical laboratory work.

You'll get a handbook and briefing for each module, so you have everything 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. See modules for examples of past modules.

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 after marks have been confirmed, 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 variety of teaching styles, ranging from seminar discussion to more traditional lecture style classes.

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.
