Certificate of Attendance

Association “PRAVNIK” awards a certificate of attendance upon successful completion of the summer school. In order to gain this certificate, participants will be expected to attend and actively participate in all classes and complete assignments required by the summer school.


ISSS does not use a credit system for the awarding of its internal degrees, and cannot award credit directly for its ISSS participation. Students wishing to obtain credit as a result of our evaluation should consult their own institutions in advance about the acceptability of the Summer School evaluation for credit purposes. The amount of credit awarded is at the discretion of individual institutions but a rough guide would suggest students completing a full 14 days of the ISS (with a 70 hour workload and a essay) might earn four to six semester credit hours. To compliment this all certificates will be come along with the transcript of all ISSS activities, which will outline all learning outcomes.
EVALUATION PAPER for the purposes of obtaining credits in home institution will be issued on request.
