The 2020 summer school is CANCELLED due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

  • Are ECTS points awarded?

Each participant will receive a course certificate with a course description and the number of contact hours. It will be up to each student’s academic institution to assign ECTS credits accordingly, taking into consideration each participant’s previous course work and institutional ECTS rules. Aarhus University awards 1 ECTS point per approx. 10 contact hours, provided they do not replicate previous coursework. The summer school will consist of approx. 30 contact hours.

  • Are there any prerequisites for participation?

There is no formal selection process for participation. However, to fully benefit from the course, participants need to have basic-to-intermediate level of knowledge in epidemiology and biostatistics. Please see further information under Program. Please contact us at summerschool@clin.au.dk if you are not sure if you qualify.
