  1. To avoid the collision with the Combinatorics Seminar, the time may be changed.

The courses indicated by (*) in the course schedules will be taught both at the master's level and at the graduate level (avancerad nivå (C/D) and forskarnivå).

A general principle is that the lectures will be the same, but that the examination will be different. For a student, to pass the course on the graduate level, more will be required; the exact requirements will be decided by the teacher.

  • The standard situation is that master's students take such a course on the master's level and graduate students take it on the graduate level.
  • A graduate student can take a course outside his or her (broad) area of research on the advanced level. To obtain a passing grade, the student's results should be on a level equivalent to grade A or B for a master's student.
  • A master's student can take a course on the graduate level. The _only_ benefit of this is that the course can later, during graduate studies, be counted as a graduate course. Of course, it can then not be counted towards the master's exam.
  • It is not possible to pass the same course on two different levels.
  • The teachers will be required to clearly state the exact requirements for passing the course on each of the two levels.
