About the courses

AU Summer University consists of a large variety of courses within the fields of Arts, Business and Economics, Business Communication, Political Science and Law, Health, Science and Technology. Courses are taught in English at Bachelor's or Master's level.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the AU Summer University programme for 2020 has been adjusted! Some courses will be offered fully online and others will go ahead as planned until further notice. You will be able to find a full updated course list here . More information can be found on the individual course pages. 

The courses taught online will be taught in a different manner. There will be a mixture of live and recorded sessions, group work, feedback sessions and student presentations. Depending on the nature of the course this may of course vary. All lecturers will do their utmost to engage students in the online teaching, to ensure that the content and learning objectives are fulfilled. Teaching hours will vary, as we have guest lecturers and students from all over the world. Live sessions will be adjusted to match the time zones of participants as far as possible.

ECTS

You will be able to receive ECTS credits by attending the course and taking the exam. The portfolio of courses will differ in workload, duration, credits awarded, and level depending on the academic focus area.

You will only be able to attend one course at a time since all courses are intensive courses. Most of the courses have sessions every day 9-13 or 9-16, some courses have teaching every second day 9-16. This depends on the structure and academic focus area. Live sessions will be adjusted to match the time zones of participants as far as possible.

5 ECTS courses have a workload between 125 - 150 hours depending on academic focus area. Teaching takes place between 2-4 weeks with a total number of contact hours between 25-30 of 45 min. depending on preparation time and workload, evaluation format and academic focus area. 

10 ECTS courses have a workload between 250 - 300 hours depending on academic focus area. Teaching takes place between 3-4 weeks with a total number of contact hours between 50-60 of 45 min. depending on preparation time and workload, evaluation format and academic focus area.
