LSE Summer School for Credit

Each Summer School course is equivalent to 15 EMFSS credits. You can earn up to 30 EMFSS credits (equivalent to one full EMFSS course) by passing two Summer School courses.

If you choose to transfer credit, your Summer School mark(s) will be carried across to your UoL record and count towards your final classification. Please note: you can attend Summer School without opting to transfer credit towards your EMFSS degree.


How to check if you are eligible for credit transfer

To be eligible for credit transfer, you must take Summer School courses that fit with the structure and requirements of your EMFSS degree. You would also need to achieve a Pass grade (‘C’ or higher) in your course(s).

You will need to have your Summer School course choice(s) approved by the EMFSS Programmes Team by following the steps below.

Please note: if you have already applied to Summer School and completed the EMFSS Summer School credit form, you can disregard the below steps.

  1. Identify the Summer School courses you are interested in.
  2. Read the EMSS Summer School credit transfer guidance to see if the courses are suitable.
  3. Complete the EMFSS - Summer School notification form to notify LSE of your course selection. (A link to this form is also provided within the Summer School application form. There is no need to submit the form twice unless you change your course choice.)
  4. On receiving the form, LSE’s EMFSS Programme Management Team will review your course selection and confirm if you are eligible to receive credit.
