All LSE-PKU Summer School courses are assessed and graded, and a transcript and certificate are provided to all participants who successfully complete their course.
All courses feature a final examination, which is two hours in length and held on the final day of the programme. Please note that these examinations cannot be rescheduled.
The LSE-PKU Summer School programme combines the strengths of LSE and PKU in the social sciences. Each course is taught by a specialist in their field who holds a position at one of these world class institutions.
In addition, courses normally require a second element of assessment such as a mid-term paper or group project.
Full details of the assessment criteria, marking schemes and deadlines will be provided at the start of the programme.
Participants who do not complete all elements of assessment, but attend at least 80 per cent of the taught sessions, are eligible to receive a statement of attendance.
