Course information

Teaching language

All courses are taught in English, which means that good knowledge of the English language is a basic requirement. Only the course on Russian literature is taught in Russian.

Why this Summer School? What's in it for me?


Active participation in a course stands for 2 ECTS. At the end of the Summer School, every participant will receive a certificate, which will indicate the courses followed and the amount of awarded ECTS credits. In order to get 5 ECTS credits (in total per course), participants can ask their teacher for an extra take-home examination, which will then be corrected and graded after the Summer School. If the student passes, he/she will receive a new certificate with the extra three ECTS from the organization.


Applicants are admitted on the basis of their previous training. A background in linguistics is highly recommended, as we mostly offer advanced courses on highly specific topics (aimed at master/PhD level students, or advanced bachelor students). If you do not have any background in this field, we'll ask you to provide us a motivation why you would like to follow this particular course. After admittance, we kindly ask you to make your payment as soon as possible.
