At the 3rd semester the student can choose between two options:
Option 1: Project Semester – with or without an integrated project-oriented study in an external organisation.
The student may choose to carry through a traditional project semester which will normally develop the professional competence that the student has acquired within the 1st-2nd semesters and/or prepare for the subject about which the student wants to write his/her thesis. The semester comprises preparation of a project report or a scientific article – possibly with the supervisor as the last author of the article.
The student may choose to integrate a project-oriented study in an external organisation either in Denmark or abroad in the project semester. The project-oriented study must be of maximum 2 - 3 months’ duration and must be approved in advance by the semester coordinator on behalf of the Study Board of Planning and Surveying. For each individual project-oriented study specific learning goals have to be drawn up, clearly reflecting the professional problem of the project.
In both cases the semester includes two course modules and one project module.
Option 2: International or national credit
After preceding approval by the Study Board the 3rd semester can be carried through at another educational institution in Denmark or abroad. Preceding approval (pre-credit) may be expected if studies at another educational institution will impart knowledge, skills and competences, which correspond to the knowledge, skills and competences, that could otherwise be obtained by following the 3rd semester in full, see learning objectives of the project semester and of the two course modules.
Problem-oriented project work with supervision, possibly with project-oriented study in an external organisation integrated.
