Learning outcomes

On completion of the course the student shall be able to:

  • actively participate in the daily scientific activities in a research environment
  • with limited supervision participate in a well-defined study that gives increased in-depth content or methodological knowledge related to the student's earlier or current courses at the advanced level.
  • give an account of and discuss the process associated with writing and publishing peer-reviewed articles in scientific journals, including questions regarding ethics and scientific integrity, co-authorship and plagiarism.
  • present and discuss the scientific study, in written and oral forms, including the connection between scientific theories from the student's earlier or current courses at advanced level, and the practical aspects of research work.


The student should participate in the daily work within a research environment. This may include:

  • participating in seminars and other, for the research environment, relevant activities
  • under supervision, carry out an investigation which means a methodological and/or subject in-depth study based on the student's previous or current courses on advanced level
  • participate in the daily work in the research environment

The student should actively participate in course seminars about writing and publish scientific articles.


Practical work, supervision in groups or individually, seminars.


Participation in the work of the research environment and carrying out the investigation is assessed continuously. Passed seminar with associated exercises. The investigation is presented both in writing and orally. The final grade corresponds to a weighted average of the different parts.

If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
