The course will be given as a distance course in hybrid form. This means that it is possible to do this course full distance. Most seminars will be in hybrid form, meaning that it will be possible to take part at place at University of Gävle or by Zoom video conference technology. Almost all lectures are recorded. Course language will be a combination of English and Swedish. Course literature is in English. The lecturers will speak English during lectures and seminars, but there will be parallel seminars in Swedish. Students who prefer so might then speak Swedish during seminars. Information and instructions regarding the seminars will be put on the learning platform Canvas. Students can choose to do the written examinations in English or Swedish.
