What is a course syllabus?
Each course has a course syllabus. The syllabus provides information about the entry requirements, learning outcomes, content, instruction and assessment. Syllabi are approved by the faculty or department offering the course and are subject to change from semester to semester.
Reading lists are appended to each syllabus.
If a syllabus needs to be adjusted, a revision is made and a new revision is established. A programme syllabus can therefore appear in several revisions. If the syllabus has been revised and there are previous versions, you will find links to them in the syllabus. A version is valid until it is replaced by a new version.
Note that the latest version may not yet have taken effect. Therefore, always check the date to make sure that the syllabus applies to the semester the course is running.
There may also be several versions of the reading list. When you have found the right syllabus, you need to check the dates in the reading lists as well.
In the course syllabus, a code is specified for the in-depth level of the course. The code indicates the education cycle and in-depth level of the course in relation to other courses within the same main field of study according to the requirements for general degrees:
