Prerequisites for participation in the exam

A prerequisite for participating in the examination is that the project is anchored in at least one of the four academic dimensions.

Before the student can take the examination, they must have participated to a satisfactory extent in the problem formulation seminar and mid-term seminar (the project seminars). The project seminars serve as regular evaluations of the project work.

The aim of the project seminars is for the student to acquire the knowledge, skills and competences described for the ongoing projects the evaluations relate to. Additionally, the aim is for the student to acquire competences in giving and receiving academic critique.

The project seminars are described in further detail in appendix 2 of the study regulation.

If the student has not participated in the project seminars to a satisfactory extent, the student must make up for their lack of participation by submitting a written commentary, the contents of which should correspond to having actively participated in the seminar in question. The replacement task for the problem seminar must be submitted prior to the date of the mid-term seminar. The replacement task for the mid-term seminar must be submitted no later than 14 days before submitting the project. The guidelines for the written commentary are as follows:

  • The replacement paper for the problem formulation seminar must contain an academic reflection on the opponent group’s problem formulation. The replacement paper must be between 2,400 and 4,800 characters (including spaces) in length.
  • The replacement paper for the mid-term seminar must contain an academic critique of the opponent group’s mid-term report. The replacement paper must be between 4,800 and 9,600 characters (including spaces) in length.

Competences in problem-oriented project work in cooperation with other students and a supervisor.

Written submissions with too few or too many characters can be rejected for assessment.

In order for the student to take the examination, the written commentary must first be approved by the project supervisor.
