Learning methods and activities
The master's thesis is written individually. The learning methods consist of:
- Independent individual work under the supervision of a supervisor. Audits can take place individually or in groups.
- Two verbal presentations of the master's project in process, including opposition from fellow students' master's projects in process, midway and towards the end of the process.
All students must read, understand and sign a written agreement that regulates the master's thesis process. The agreement confirms that a supervision relationship has been established, that the topic has been approved by the supervisor and that the parts (student, supervisor and department) know, understand and have accepted the regulations specified in the agreement. Organization of collaboration with and research at institutions that are relevant to their own master's project must be arranged by the students themselves.

Form of assessment and grading scale
The written master's thesis is considered an exam for this course. The master's thesis must be written in accordance with guidelines in line with the ILU requirements given by the course coordinator. The master's thesis is assessed through the letter grade A-F, where the grades A-E mean passed and F means failed.
The Master thesis is normally written as a monograph. The thesis is submitted individually or as joint work between two students. If the thesis is submitted as joint work, a document must be attached which describes the contribution of the individual candidate. This will normally involve individual assessment of the candidates.
Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
