The educational method used is problem-based learning (PBL). PBL emphasises the student´s development of free, self-supporting, lifelong learning ability as an instrument for critical inquiry. The students own queries and formulated problems form the basis of PBL. Important is also the student´s ability to take responsibility for his/her own learning, and to seek and evaluate information and knowledge and to train co-operation and flexible attitude to different views and ideas.
|Active participation in tutorial groups, accounted project work and written examination.

Students who have failed three times on the course or part of the course are entitled to request another examiner at the new examination occasion.
