You will study one course per Queen Mary Summer School session. Each course is worth 15 Queen Mary credits.

Usually, the 15 credits we award for each three-week Queen Mary Summer School session translate to 3–4 credits in the US system and 7.5 ECTS in the European system.

Your home institution should confirm if they will grant credit for Summer School courses. Whilst we will do everything we can to support you throughout the Summer School application process, it's your responsibility to check with your home institution if you can transfer credit from the Summer School prior to arriving at Queen Mary.
