Course organisation and communication

Very welcome to the course Existential Dimensions of Health, 15 cr!
The course is on advanced level. It is an internetbased distance course with 100 % study pace. The studies are based on individual responsibility, active search for knowledge, critical approach and reflection.
The lectures will be given via the distance tool Zoom. If you are not familiar with Zoom, more information can be found here
A zoom link for our meetings will be presented on Canvas, our learning platform.
The course examinations are in form of written assignments as well as oral presentations. The course starts week 3 with a course introduction via Zoom.

We have no meetings on Campus but use the learning plattform Canvas for communication. That includes handing in assignments and assessments. On Canvas you will find important documents, like the curriculum, the course literature list and the study guidance which will guide you through the whole course. If you are not familiar with Canvas it is a good idea to look at the information you can find here
Once again, very welcome!
Ann-Kristin Eriksson

The course is given by the Faculty of Business and Education.

Written exams

Registration for exams, including re-takes, is mandatory. You can register for exams via Ladok. You need to register at least ten days before the exam date. If you didn't register in time, you can not take your exam. No exceptions are made from this rule, we do not accept registrations when the deadline is passed.

If you are a distance study student and want to take your exam off-campus, you need to apply to do so at least three weeks prior to the exam date.
