International Bachelor Study Programme in Natural Science
Students will be registered automatically, but have to confirm this registration by signing up for exam as a group. If you have to sign up for the project again, please contact email@example.com
Remember to sign up for the prerequisites for participation in the exam when signing up
|Detailed description of content||
The project should be based on research question that focuses on how research is done in the individual natural sciences to create new knowledge through the interaction between theories, models, experiments and simulations. The project work thus lends itself to immersion in the individual science subjects and focuses on subject specific problems and methods. Experimental work is often included as a central element. The projects can be said to be "within" science.
Natural science is understood to be the subjects affiliated with Nat Bach, including chemistry, computer science, environmental biology, geography, mathematics, medical biology, molecular biology and Tek Sam.

|Expected work effort (ECTS-declaration)||
Project work is 15 ECTS corresponding to a 405 hour workload. Nat Bach has issued a guide for the workload during the semester intranet-side
- In total: 405 hours
|Evaluation- and feedback forms||
Project work is carried out in a dialogue with the supervisor who gives feedback on the progress of the project. The project work is evaluated in the house in cooperation with the class coordinator as well as in a written evaluation.

|Learning outcomes and assessment criteria||
The purpose of the project is for the student to gain experience with fundamental scientific issues within the natural sciences through working on a representative example, as particular emphasis is placed on the interaction between theory and model on the one hand and the obtaining and analysis of empirical data through observation, experimentation or simulation.
|Prerequisites for participation in the exam||
Approval of the project work is contingent on the student having actively and satisfactorily participated in the project, including with respect to the following elements of the project work:
|Teaching and working methods||
The project is problem-oriented, exemplary and participant-led. The intention of the project work is to develop the student’s proficiency in applying natural science theories and methods while working on a delimited academic area. The project work entails the student independently formulating a problem statement of their own choosing so that the project provides an exemplary realisation of the purpose of the project in question. The project work concludes with the preparation of a project report. An integrated part of the project is to develop the student’s competences in academic communication in a scientific context through sharing knowledge via oral presentations, posters, the project report or some other form of written communication aimed at a specific target group. Over the course of the project work, the group will undergo an evaluation together with the supervisor in connection with the halfway evaluation and once more at the end of the project.
|Type of activity||
|Form of examination||
Oral group exam for the participants in the project.
The starting point for the oral exam is the project report and any supplementary material. The exam includes individual presentations within one of the topics selected by the examiner, which will be communicated to the students no later than 3 working days prior to the exam. Each individual presentation may last up to 5 minutes. A dialogue between the student(s) and the assessors about the project, will be conducted after the individual presentation(s).
There may be posed questions related to the subject area of the project report.
The assessment is individual and is based on the project report, any additional material and the student´s oral performance.
Permitted group size: 2-7 students.
The character limits of the project report are:
For 2 students: 24,000-180,000 characters, including spaces.
For 3 students: 24,000-192,000 characters, including spaces.
For 4 students: 24,000-192,000 characters, including spaces.
For 5 students: 24,000-204,000 characters, including spaces.
For 6 students: 24,000-204,000 characters, including spaces.
For 7 students: 24,000-204,000 characters, including spaces.
The character limits include the cover, table of contents, summary, bibliography, figures and other illustrations, but exclude any appendices.
The project report must include a summary in English, that is part of the assessment.
Time allowed for exam including time used for assessment is for:
2 students: 60 minutes.
3 students: 75 minutes.
4 students: 90 minutes.
5 students: 105 minutes.
6 students: 120 minutes.
7 students: 135 minutes.
Writing and spelling skills in the project report are part of the assessment.
