Uddannelsesplanlægningen tager udgangspunkt i, at det er muligt at gennemføre et anbefalet studieforløb uden overlap. Men omkring valgfrie elementer og studieplaner som går ud over de anbefalede studieforløb, kan der forekomme overlap, alt efter hvilke kurser du vælger.

Registration is happing through stads selvbetjeningwithin the announced registration period, as you can see on the Studyadministration homepage.

When registering for courses, please be aware of the potential conflicts between courses or exam dates on courses. The planning of course activities at Roskilde University is based on the recommended study programs which do not overlap. However, if you choose optional courses and/or study plans that goes beyond the recommended study programs, an overlap of lectures or exam dates may occur depending on which courses you choose.

Detailed description of content

The project work is performed in groups of 2-8 students. During the project work, students receive guidance from supervisors to an extent determined by the Study Board.

Project process

Guidance on the use of quantitative methods in projects and theses.

If you and your group find quantitative analyses relevant to answer your research question, and your supervisor cannot help, here is an offer of assistance.

We offer a workshop where a group of researchers will talk about how to use quantitative data in projects and theses. We will present an overview of publicly available data sets, as well as the your possibilities, if you wish to collect your own data. We expect you to have taken a course in basic quantitative methods (BC 8 or equivalent).

The workshop is held on February 27, 2:15 pm – 16:00 pm, in theory room 06.2-007.

After the workshop you/your group will have the opportunity to book an appointment with a skilled student, Joakim Schollert Larsen, who will help with downloading and preparing data for analysis and interpretation. Write to Joakila@ruc.dk to schedule an appointment. If you need extra guidance on any particular issue, you will be referred to a relevant researcher.
