Development and management of educational work Follow-up and evaluation of educational work Educational assessment Scientific methods Work-based education

The teaching is conducted in the form of lectures and seminars and in study groups. Different issues are problemized in the lectures. In the study groups the students reflect on and analyse different problems/questions. These are presented orally in the seminars. The teaching is also conducted in the form of work-based education

The students are examined orally in the seminars and in the form of a written assignment. An overall assessment is made by means of the marking scale U (Fail), G (Pass) and VG (Pass with Distinction). A student who fails the work-based education exam may retake it only once. The other exams may be retaken on four occasions after the ordinary one.

Students who neither attend the course introduction in person nor contact the examiner will lose their places to reserves on the admission list.
