EU Grades and 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 class and internship
  • attendance and contribution to lectures
  • participation in and contribution to class excursions
  • self study and homework assignments

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 with their academic advisor and/or professor to receive credit transfer approval by their home institution before applying to MISU Summer Academy.
