In­form­a­tion and tips on course se­lec­tion

  • Exchange students may choose courses from all departments, degree programmes and semesters.
  • Bachelor students may only take courses at Bachelor level.
  • Master's students may take any course from the English master's programmes.
  • You must have the required competencies stated in the course descriptions. Our internationalisation officers check these as part of the application process.
