Note

The studies take place primarily in a distance mode. You need to participate in several meetings in Borås, Sweden, during your education. These residential periods will take place on 10-14 September 2018, one week in February or March 2019, one week in fall 2019 (probably early September), one day for master's thesis seminar in late May/early June 2020 (or when thesis is accepted for seminar). Communication between the students and teachers is maintained mainly through the e-learning platform. In order to follow the courses, you are therefore required to have access to a computer on which you are able to install software and have Internet-access at a reasonably high bandwidth. It is not enough with a smartphone, iPad, Chromebook or similar computer-like facilities, although you may use them for some tasks. Your Internet-access needs to have at least 10 Mbps download speed, although lower speeds may be enough for some tasks. Some recordings may require even higher speeds. Some software may need to be bought, although we try to lean on software that do not require fees, as far as that is possible. In order to participate in seminars online you also need headphones and and microfones connected to your computer. Language of instruction will be English.
