Questions about registration and admission

This course is offered in English and it is an advanced level, part-time course that runs over 10 weeks. It is offered as a distance course and the teaching and learning takes place through a mix of live and pre-recorded lectures, an online webinar, web-based interaction and work on a take-home exam. All readings for the course are in English but students can choose to write the take-home exam in either English or Swedish. The course does not have meetings on campus.

The course is offered as a programme course on both the Master programme in Social Work (course code SAA104) and the 7th semester of the Socionom programme (course code SAA012).

All live sessions of the course are scheduled in the afternoon on Mondays. There will be one compulsory webinar and this is scheduled Monday 19th September 13.00-16.00.

The course starts Monday 29th August with a live Zoom session 13.00-15.00. The link to the Zoom session will be posted on our learning platform, Canvas. This first session will contain course introduction followed by a lecture. The lecture will also be available as a recording afterwards, but it is recommended that you attend this session live online since the course introduction will not be recorded and you have the possibility to ask questions about the course.

The learning platform that we will use is Canvas. We will use Zoom for live sessions online.

The course is given by the Faculty of health and occupational studies
