Assessment and Credit

The summer school programme includes at least 80 hours contact (teaching) time.

Three US credits are recommended for this programme. Your home university must decide if it wants to award you this credit - they may contact us for more details of the programme before making a decision. When your work is graded you will be given a percentage mark (grade conversion from United Kingdom into US letter grade).

There is information in the 'Frequently Asked Questions' section of this website explaining Irish Studies in more detail. On successful completion of the programme, we will provide you with a transcript and a grade for your essay to enable your home university to make a decision about credit.

Students who do not opt for assessment may be issued with a certificate of participation on completion of the programme.

Course Work for Assessment
Students wishing to be considered for credit are required to complete an essay of not less than 4,000 words (including bibliography),  to be submitted at the end of the programme (or within one month thereafter).
