Academic modules

The Leeds International Summer School (LISS) 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'll receive 20 Leeds credits, equivalent to six US or 10 ECTS credits. 

Choose your modules

There is a choice of modules in each block. If you're applying for the full four-week programme you should select one module from block 1 modules and one module from block 2 modules. Enrolment on modules is allocated on a first come frist served basis and on the application form you will be asked to select a back up module for your chosen block(s). If you're applying for the two-week programme, you should select one module from your chosen block. Mix and match modules or specialise in a particular subject area.

A minimum of nine students is required for each academic module to run. 

Credit transfer and transcripts

If you successfully complete the summer school you'll 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 will be sent to you by email in September. 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. If you have been nominated to attend LISS by your home university, a copy of your transcript will also be sent by email to your home university.

On successful completion of LISS you'll earn up to 20 Leeds credits, equivalent to 10 ECTS or six US credits. You may be able to transfer the credits earned on LISS to your home institution. You should always discuss credit transfer with an adviser at your home university as arrangements can vary from institution to institution.
