All courses are taught in English, which means that good knowledge of the English language is a basic requirement. The courses of the Russian Programme are taught in Russian.
Active participation in a course stands for 2 ECTS. At the end of the Summer School, every participant will receive a certificate, which will indicate the courses followed and the amount of awarded ECTS credits. In order to get 5 ECTS credits, participants can ask their teacher for an extra take-home examination, which will then be corrected and graded. If they pass, they will receive a new certificate from the organization.
