The AEMS summer school is an academic course. If completed successfully, BOKU-students or "Mitbeleger*innen" from other Austrian universities acquire 5 ECTS credits from the University of National Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU). Foreign students get a BOKU certificate that needs to be acknowledged by your home university.

You can find more information about the course in the directory of BOKU-courses here.
