All LSE-UCT July School courses are assessed and graded, and an LSE-UCT July School transcript and UCT Short Course certificate are provided to all participants who successfully complete their course.
Courses are generally assessed on a mid-term paper and a final examination, but other elements such as mid-term quizzes, group projects and student presentations may also contribute.
All courses feature a final examination, which is two hours in length and held on the final day of the programme. The final examination will be written by hand, however additional arrangements can be made for students with a disability or medical condition. All participants are encouraged to take the final examination, but those who opt out are entitled to a Statement of Attendance, provided they have attended at least 80 per cent of the taught sessions.
Full details of the assessment criteria, marking schemes and deadlines will be provided at the start of the programme. Please see the individual course descriptions for further information.
