Teaching and working methods

The internship is a period of work in a relevant organisation, workplace or business and must include independent tasks, which the student is supposed to carry out in a qualified and professional way. The internship period is prepared together with a supervisor. The supervisor supports the student’s learning process during the internship period. The supervisor supervise the student, when she or he writes the internship report, which must include a critical, theory-based reflection and a contextualized analysis of the organization/workplace/business where the internship took place as well as a self- reflection on the student’s experience, tasks and role.
The students find relevant internships themselves, but the internship placement must be approved by the programme director. The internship can be carried out in Sweden or abroad.


If special circumstances prevail, and if it is possible with consideration of the nature of the compulsory component, the examiner may decide to replace the compulsory component with another equivalent component.

If the LiU coordinator for students with disabilities has granted a student the right to an adapted examination for a written examination in an examination hall, the student has the right to it.

If the coordinator has recommended for the student an adapted examination or alternative form of examination, the examiner may grant this if the examiner assesses that it is possible, based on consideration of the course objectives.

An examiner may also decide that an adapted examination or alternative form of examination if the examiner assessed that special circumstances prevail, and the examiner assesses that it is possible while maintaining the objectives of the course.

Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course twice are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.

Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
