Course organisation and communication

The course starts week 13 with call and course introduction on Tuesday 29th of March at 13.15-15.00. If you cannot attend this occasion, please contact me. The course is a self-study course and therefore only two other scheduled learning occasions will be held. This will be on Tuesday 3rd of May and Tuesday 31st of May. Besides these occasions, individual tuition will be held.

Participation will be through the web-conference tool Zoom, which you can read about here: https://hig.se/Ext/En/University-of-Gavle/Library/Learning-Center/Web-meetings-with-Zoom.html The Zoom link which will be used is: https://hig-se.zoom.us/j/65207775210

Register yourself before the course starts through Ladok and you will automatically be enrolled on the course on the learning plattform Canvas. There you will find a study guidance which explains about the course contents and assignments.

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.
