Additional regulations

The course is taken in close connection to other courses during the same semester. Assignments such as observation exercises, data collection and similar, for these courses, will be set during the placement.

A student who failed in the course may take it once again (in total at most two trials, including the first). This type of limitation is allowed for courses that contain placement or equivalent (see The Higher Education Ordinance SFS 1993:100, Chapter 6, Section 21).
