Single Course Exams
Courses are not automatically examined although provision can be made to take a Single Course Exam in most courses at a cost of £100.00. Exams can only be booked and paid for on arrival
When students take single course exams, the University of Essex grants 15 ECTS credits. Participants from countries participating in the Bologna scheme should be able to use these credits for their M.A. at their home university. Please inquire to your home university for further information! The summer school office has no information about which universities accept ECTS credits from the University of Essex.
The majority of exams will be split into 2 sections, the first to be completed on campus in exam conditions on the evening of the last Thursday of your course and the second as a take home paper to be completed and returned to the summer school office via e-mail 1 week after your departure.
N.B. Due to the marking structure the participant will receive a provisional result around OCT/NOV 17 however the final result, certificate and award of credits from the University will not be provided until after an exam board the following FEB 18.
