General courses

About Degree Project, Second cycle, 30 Credits: From July 1, 2015, the grading system is pass (P) and fail (F) for degree projects. Students who have begun the studies as a Degree programme student from 2007-07-01 – 2015-06-30 (Batch Autumn 07 until Batch Autumn 14) can apply for to perform the degree project with grading system on a scale A-E. If a student wants to perform the degree project with grading system on a scale A-E – the student needs to apply for permission to the examiner of the degree project – in very good time in advance before registration of the course and in very good time in advance before the work begins.
