Grades & Credits

All participants receive a certificate of attendance.

If you choose to sit a written exam, the course counts for 3 ECTS credits.

The Academic Board of the LMU Munich defines the requirements and contact hours* for successful completion of the courses as follows:

  • regular attendance
  • preparation for and active participation in seminars
  • attendance and contribution to lectures

Written exam

For the attendance of the course you will receive a certificate which attests the successful completion of the course. The written exam is therefore not mandatory. Should you choose to sit the written exam, the course will count for 3 ECTS. 

For the written exam, you need to submit an essay (about 10-15 pages long) in one of the fields of the lectures. At the end of the programme, you can select the class which you are most interested in to write the paper and your starting day (within a certain time range). After receiving your individual question, you then have two weeks to complete the essay. The papers will be graded and the topic as well as the grade will be included in your certificate.


Every student will receive an official transcript after the successful completion of all program requirements. The transcript will show the course name and contact hours, the number of acquired credits as well as the achieved grades.

Credit Transfer

Most international colleges and universities accept credits from MISU LMU. However, each institution has its own policy regarding credit acceptance from other institutions. We strongly recommend that students consult their academic advisor and/or professor to receive credit transfer approval before applying to MISU Summer Academy. Students who would like to transfer credits to their home universities should print out all documents, contact the professor or study abroad advisor and ask for credit and grade approval.
