Academic Credit

The Burren Geology Field School at Caherconnell

Courses are open to everyone, however some attendees may be interested in acquiring academic credit whilst completing their field school course.

Academic Credit

Academic Credit is provided by the National University of Ireland at Galway (NUI, Galway) with whom the school has a formal link.
Students seeking academic credit will be asked to attend all Field School sessions, complete an assessment during the course of their stay, and provide relevant details of their home institution.

Upon successful completion of a course, transcripts of academic credit will be sent from NUI, Galway to the home institution and a copy to the student’s home address.

Those seeking academic credit from NUI Galway will be subject to a nominal fee for the transfer of academic credits. This is not included in the tuition fee charged by the field school.
