At the beginning of the term exchange students normally choose two courses from those listed in the menu. Swedish students choose one of the courses.
Each course consists of approximately 20 hours of classroom instruction. The courses are organized as seminars. In addition to attending lectures, students are expected to participate in seminar discussions, prepare presentations on specific topics, and write papers. The method of examination differs from course to course, but as a general rule grades are based on both seminar activity and a final examination. Note that the information on literature is preliminary.
During the second half of the term the students can choose between two forms of instruction. The student may either write a research paper on a topic that is associated with one of the courses in which he/she participated during the first half of the term, or follow the course Swedish Politics, 15 credits.
