How to take a course for credit at your university

Each course can optionally be taken for credit by attending all days and completing the assessment tasks set. These tasks need to be marked by academics at your home university.

If you want to take a course for credit, it is your responsibility to contact the relevant undergraduate or postgraduate convenor at your university as soon as possible, to organise enrolment and meet assessment requirements through your home university.

If you plan to take one or more courses for credit, please tell us this on the registration form.
