The third term is an opportunity for you make a personal footprint in your master’s degree.

Internship or courses?

Maybe you would like to get a taste of the life after graduation by doing an internship? Or maybe you prefer to dig deeper into your discipline and take courses, preparing for the master’s thesis, and Phd-studies? Or, then again, maybe you would like to add a new field to your competencies by studying at another faculty?

If you decide to take courses, a world of opportunities are available to you. You can choose to apply for exchange studies in Australia and New Zealand, Asia, South and North America, Europe and the Nordic countries.
