The teaching methods on the program vary and will consist of both lectures and teaching in smaller groups. Many students form study groups, either for the entire two-year program or maybe just for a single course.


The exams will be both oral and written exams according to the individual courses. An internship is often finished with some sort of report and the Master’s thesis is a major written project that finishes up the entire degree.

In all sorts of reports and exams, it is important that you are able to argue and refer correctly to the source material. Otherwise, you may be accused of plagiarism.
