“I was amazed by the professor here, who was really nice and patient. He always planned the lessons well and was very understanding.”
The Leeds International Summer School runs for four weeks and comprises two modules, each lasting two weeks. Each module is worth 10 Leeds credits so by completing the four-week programme you will receive 20 Leeds credits, equivalent to six US or 10 ECTS credits.

There is a choice of modules in each block. If you are applying for the full four-week programme you should select one module from each block. If you are applying for the two-week programme you should select one module from your chosen block.

Credit transfer and transcripts
If you successfully complete the summer school you will receive a certificate of attendance and an official University of Leeds transcript with individual grades for each academic module you study.
The certificate of attendance is presented in the last week of the summer school. The transcript is sent out by post in September.
- Students from partner universities: your transcript will be posted to the study abroad office (or equivalent) at your home institution. If you would like a copy, contact your home study abroad adviser from mid September onwards
- Independent students: your transcript will be posted to your permanent home address as it is listed in the Universitys computer system. Please update your permanent home address on Minerva before leaving Leeds. It is your responsibility to pass on your transcript to your home university so that they can assess your study abroad period and transfer credit if necessary
On successful completion of LISS you will earn up to 20 Leeds credits, equivalent to 10 ECTS or six US credits. Please contact us for details of how to transfer your credits. You should always discuss credit transfer with an academic adviser at your home university as arrangements can vary from institution to institution.
