During their studies, RM students can earn 10 EC with LOT by typically doing a one-week Winter school with RM1 courses and a two-week school with regular courses.
An RM1 course is worth 2.5 EC. RM1 students can take up to two RM1 courses and do the corresponding assignments during the Winter School for 5 EC in total for both courses.
A Regular course is worth 1 EC. RM2 students can take up to three regular courses per school, and optionally write a paper for one of these courses for an extra 2 EC.
PhD students are advised to take no more than two courses a week during a LOT school.
Participants receive a LOT certificate with corresponding ECTS per course upon completion of all requirements (i.e. preparation, participation on all 5 days and a pass for all given assignments). If these requirements are not met, LOT will not issue a certificate.
