Recognition and accreditation

Certificate of attendance

Upon completion of the Summer School, CIP will provide you with a Certificate of Attendance. To qualify for the certificate, you will need to complete interactive tasks on time and participate in at least 70% of the teaching sessions.

Credits

Those wishing to seek credits from their home institutions may opt for an additional summative assignment (a 2000-word essay) due two weeks after the course. 
Whilst we do not offer credits ourselves, we can write to your home institution to indicate that the Summer School, at Level 1 (FHEQ 4) offers knowledge equivalent to 4 US credits, 7.5 ECTS or 15 FHEQ.
