Learning outcome

Ingress:
- This course will provide in-depth knowledge in the field.

Knowledge:
- The student will acquire specialized knowledge in support of project completion in the field.

Skills:
- The student will be able to find scientific literature and draw out the main elements that are relevant to the project.

General competence:
- Increased understanding of the field.

Learning methods and activities

Topics are normally given as supervised self study, but can also include exercises, seminars or free-standing lectures. In some modules (fieldwork), a report, presentation or similar may be part of the assessment, in addition to an oral exam. Information about this (including weighting) will be given at course start. The course will be held in English if international students attend.

Further on evaluation

If the course is based on two modules (which have to have the same form of assessment), the grade in the course will be based on the average of both modules. However, in order to be eligible to receive this grade, both modules must receive a passing score.

Specific conditions

Admission to a programme of study is required:
