Undervisningens upplägg

The teaching consists of seminars and individual supervision. The seminars are compulsory. All teaching is normally given in English.


Both written and oral exams are used. Apart from grading of the written thesis examination is carried out through compulsory seminars, where the student defends his/her thesis and carries out an opposition. Moreover, the student shall attend three additional seminars. In order to achieve the grade A-B it is required that the thesis is examined during the first semester of registration on the course. Examination based on the same syllabus as at the ordinary examination is guaranteed during two years after the first registration to the course. Students who have passed an examination cannot redo the examination to receive a higher grade. It is not possible to appeal against a received grade, i.e. to get it examined by a higher authority, but a student can always criticize the grading or ask another examiner to reconsider the examination. When a student has failed an examination on two occasions, he or she has a right to have another grading teacher. A written request for an alternative examiner should be handed to the director of studies. EXAMINATION CREDIT TRANSFER Credit transfer is always examined individually.
