Project-based Programme


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

A project-oriented study in an external organisation (20 ECTS) gives you the opportunity to embark on a placement in a private or public company/organisation located abroad.

The aim is to gain insight and skills in financial and legal problem solving.

For a project-oriented study in an external organisation to amount to 20 ECTS and count as English ECTS, the following requirements apply:

  • The company/organisation is located abroad in a country outside of Scandinavia
  • The company / organization uses English as their primary language
  • The course is approved in advance by the Board of Studies

Part of the student's work in the company must be related to a concrete economic or legal problem area, which is approved in advance by both the university and the company. The company undertakes to provide the student with work assignments which enable the student to prepare a problem-based project on a legal situation within a chosen field. The project should address both the practical issues and the relevant theoretical issues related to the problem area.

At the same time, you will gain knowledge of the work processes and daily life in the company.
