Student-Led, Individually-Created Courses


Student-Led, Individually-Created Courses (SLICCs) offer a reflective learning and assessment framework for students to gain academic credit for experiential learning.

SLICCs currently available to students:

  • Summer SLICCs – Available to all first- and second-year undergraduate students to support and recognise their summer activities.
  • Cross-disciplinary – A range of experiential activities are becoming open to students that allow them to work across disciplinary boundaries, with the SLICCs reflective learning framework used to guide, structure and recognise the experience.
  • In schools – Schools across all three colleges are using the SLICCs framework to provide course structure and materials, tailored to a specific activity, from pre-honours to integrated PhDs.
  • External – A growing number of partners are also using the SLICCs framework to support their activities, individually or in groups to recognise inter-institutional student activities.

The SLICCs framework is overseen and supported via a partnership between the Careers Service and the Institute for Academic Development.
