Learning outcome

The purpose of the course module is to give students the opportunity to organise and complete an individual programme of studies governed by academic and personal interests, in collaboration with a supervisor. The module can be undertaken in Denmark or abroad.

At the end of the course, students should be able to:

Knowledge:

  • account for a high level of scientific insight and knowledge in a selected field in Pharmaceutical Sciences.

 

Skills:

  • structure, perform and communicate a scientific project in Pharmaceutical Sciences applying adequate theories, methodologies and tools.

 

Competencies:

  • independently take responsibility to organize and carry out a scientific project in Pharmaceutical Sciences

  • independently take responsibility to develop further and specialized knowledge and skills related to selected field in Pharmaceutical Sciences

To be agreed by the student and supervisor.

The student(s) and supervisor decide the student workload of the course. The duration of the course depends on the number of ECTS points. For bachelor students in Pharmacy, a 7.5 or 15 ECTS points course can be selected. For other students, the course credits are defined in intervals of 7.5 ECTS points from 7.5 to 30 ECTS points (1 ECTS point equals a student workload of 27.5 hours).

The student(s) and supervisor determine how to assess student performance. This may be on a pass/fail basis or according to the seven point grading scale.
