Forms of credit

It is possible to get a Certification or participation in the Block Courses. Additionally we may be able to provide ECTS credits if desired.

To get a Certificate of Participation (for either one of the two blocks or both), you will need to turn in solutions to the exercises that will be assigned during the course (tutoring session exercises) and get a passing grade.  The certification will be done on a course-by-course basis, and will state that you have successfully completed the Block Course in the respective topic.  Please register for the course in advance so we can estimate how much work will be involved in the evaluation of the reports.

Participants who do not want a certificate or points are not required to turn in solutions, but are allowed to.
