Course information

  • 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.
  • Most courses will be hybrid, so they will be given on campus and online, at the same time. A few courses are on campus only, as indicated in the program and course descriptions. 
  • 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 extra3 ECTS from the organization.
  • LOT students that take courses at the Leiden Summer School in Languages and Linguistics can find more information on the conditions, credits and fees at the LOT website.
  • The registration is open (see application).
