Structure of the education
The programme is a continuation of a degree within technology or natural science. It has the following structure.
The participants in the programme are first given an overview, comprising 45 higher education credits, which contain 6 or 7.5 higher education credits which are obligatory. In this base, the fundamental skills and questions within innovation and entrepreneurship are introduced.
In the other half of the programme, the degree project, which is on the advanced level comprising 15 higher educational credits is given as a course. The degree project is a scientific final work which analyzes an entrepreneurial/innovation project.
The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in Appendix 1: Course list
Courses in the first and the second cycle are graded on a scale from A to F. A-E are passing grades, A is the highest grade. The grades pass (P) and fail (F) are used for courses under certain circumstances.
Conditions for participation in the programme
A condition in order to participate in the studies is that the student, each spring and autumn must enrol for the coming term. This is done through “My pages”, between the 1st and 15th of November and the 1st and 15th of May, respectively.
By completing term enrolment, the student has confirmed their intention to study and participate in the programme. Only after that may the student be able to:
• Register for the term
• Register for courses
• Get results reported
• Receive student aid
Conditions for participation in the courses
Requirements for promotion from term 1 to term 2:
At least 10 higher education credits from term 1 must be completed.
Students who have not fulfilled this requirement must, in collaboration with a study adviser, create an individual study plan. The main intent with the individual study plan is that the student will complete the remaining elements during the next coming study term. In the study plan, the remaining elements should be included as well as suitable courses from the next study term. Special consideration should be given to the courses’ prerequisites.
Recognition of previous academic studies
Students have the possibility to apply for recognition of previous academic studies from course(s) at another higher education institution or university, both national and international.
