The aim of the course is that students are able to complete a project demonstrating good writing skills and independent command of the English language and culture. The project also enhances students’ professional competencies.
Students plan and implement a language project on a business topic in a group, and in this way practice their language and project management skills.
The topic of the project is agreed upon with the instructor and a representative from a company/organization. The topic should differ from the topic that students address in their theses.
Cooperation with the business community
The project topic should relate to real-life business and should also be commissioned by a company or other organisation. The project should also be of benefit to the commissioning company or organisation.
Teaching and learning methods
Attendance is compulsory in the introduction session which is held prior to the project. Students then present their project plan. They report on the progress of the project and present the final report to the instructor at dates agreed upon with the instructor.
Independent project work supports the pedagogical approach of ‘learning by researching and developing’.
Independent study: 54 h including Self-assessment of learning 1 h
Recognition of prior learning (RPL)
