Course Syllabus

Legal Status of Syllabus

The Higher Education Ordinance 6:14, 15 makes it clear that there shall be a syllabus for every course. The syllabus is laid down by the University and is a legally binding stipulation which teaching staff and examiners for a course are obliged to follow.

Limitation of Examination Sessions

In accordance with the Higher Education Ordinance 6:21, any limitations on examination sessions or work placement periods shall be clearly evident in the syllabus.

Interim Regulations

In connection with any decision on change in the syllabus or discontinuation of a course decisions shall also be taken on interim regulations.

Content of the Syllabus

In accordance with the Higher Education Ordinance 6:15, the following information shall be specified in the syllabus; the course level, the number of credits, goals for the course, special entry requirements, forms of assessment of the students’ performances and the other directions required.
In the syllabuses at LTU, the following are indicated also:

  • name of the course
  • main content of the course and its realisation 
  • course’s grading system
  • course’s different parts (elements)
  • where the number of different sessions for examinations and work placements or equivalent are limited
  • when the syllabus or revision of syllabus starts to apply as well as interim regulations
  • list of references (bibliography)
  • examiners for the course

Overlapping Courses

Overlapping courses (courses with equivalent content) shall not be included in the higher educational qualification (degree). The syllabus shall clearly show when two courses have largely similar content, i.e. overlapping courses. In the case of uncertainty concerning the content of equivalent courses, the student concerned shall contact the relevant examiner.

Adoption of Syllabus 

The Head of Department decides on the adoption (confirmation) of the syllabuses.

Course Litterature

The syllabus shall include mandatory reading lists (prescribed reading/course litterature) and possible reference literature. Where less than one half of a course book is used on a course then this shall be indicated in the bibliography. All material on the reading list must be available in the University Library.
A complete bibliography shall be available 50 working days at the latest before the course start, in order to enable the students to procure literature for the first course date. After the course start, any change in the reading list may only be carried out after consultation with the course participants. Exceptions may be made for the repertoire list for programmes in fine, applied and performing arts.

Course Litterature in case of Functional Impairment 

It is the student’s responsibility, in good time, to notify examiners if he or she has any functional impairment that entails reading and writing difficulties. Examiners shall take into account that it may take eight weeks for students with functional impairments and who are in need of literature in other media to have read through the material on the reading list and they should adopt the necessary measures in this connection.


The syllabus describes the goals, content and course literature. It also includes pre-requisites that you must meet in order to take the course.

A syllabus can be changed which means that if you take a course during a certain period, you should look at the version of the curriculum that applies for that period. Changes in the curriculum are published no later than 10 weeks before the course starts.
